Full Description

Focusing on painting technique, finding inspiration and overcoming the barriers to creativity, this 3-day workshop will benefit beginners who would like to learn more about painting though to artists who would like to refresh their skills and get some inspiration to get moving.

Irish artist Róisín O’Farrell has created a concentrated and clearly structured course held over three days that focuses on painting technique, finding inspiration and overcoming the barriers to creativity.

Together we will explore:

How to use a limited palette, understanding color theory, really getting to grips with tonal value, the six-stage technique involved in painting a painting from start to finish, fundamentals of good composition, sketching, underpainting, applying paint – brush & palette knife, finishing up & evaluation.
The workshop includes painting demonstrations and practical hands-on exercises to let you get some paint under your nails.

Let me help you learn how to nurture the root of your passion, your creativity and overcome barriers both practical and internal to progressing. We will also take time figure out how you can bring balance to your creative life, find new inspiration and sustain it over time.

Róisín The Teacher

Róisín is not just an artist. She has many years of experience in giving workshops and teaching. From the serious business of passing on the tradition of creativity to the simple joy of painting, Róisín is committed and passionate about teaching, sharing and living creativity.

Although many experienced artists attend, you do not have to be an experienced or confident artist to attend or enjoy the weekend.  It will be a down to earth, inclusive experience, designed to bring people together for the joy of painting, some serious learning, and good company. Róisín weekend workshops, now in their eighth year, regularly sells out quickly.

Róisín was born to a family of talented artists. Her exposure to art from an early age offered her a visual apprenticeship to both classical and contemporary art. She paints bright, vibrantly colorful paintings in textured, buttery oils with a contemporary finish. Her work is influenced by a sense of home, and feature warm, light-filled period interiors, tumbled families of rain boots, vintage cutlery, and quirky china teacups.

First discovered in early 2009, Róisín work is in high demand in established galleries across Ireland, the UK and Europe.
