This one day workshop will focus on teaching how to paint ‘en plein air’ in oils at the iconic Broadway Tower with artist Georgina Potter.

Georgina works very quickly making large, expressive and loose marks, creating an energetic painting.  Georgina will share her techniques and approach to oil painting.  The day will consist of a demonstration by Georgina and opportunities to work individually, with guidance.

Georgina Potter is an observational British artist primarily renowned for her ability to record the weather and its resulting impact on life, documenting what she sees in a lively expressive manner.

She has exhibited at many shows such as The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, ING Discerning Eye and The Royal Society of Marine Artists and has won prizes for her work.
