No need to pack! On a virtual holiday we travel in our minds and immerse ourselves in Moroccan colours, food, and architecture.
Vicki Norman leads you via Zoom to viewpoints and sets you off into an extraordinary journey of painting, with tuition on how to tackle busy market scenes from the Medina and capture the vast landscapes of this unique region. Colour is everywhere and your palette will be vivid and wonderfully contrasting.
In between your painting sessions Vicki will give you exercises and homework to help your technique and your appetite for this fascinating country.
We will also give you some delicious Moroccan recipes to try out for those that really want to get in the holiday spirit!
Learning via Zoom is highly concentrated and productive. It allows you to delve into technique and imagination.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
All sessions start at 2pm GMT
Day 1: Meet Vicki and the Art Safari team on Zoom for three hours of demonstration and tuition time, which includes advice on painting mountains.
Vicki shows examples of her own paintings of Morocco.
You will have the option to paint from a variety of images to suit your taste from a library of photos you will receive as part of the course package.
Vicki includes a slide talk on the work of famous local artists who have painted the same location, to get us inspired.
You have time in between session to complete your work and submit images of your paintings for feedback on our private Facebook group.
Day 2: We will meet again the following afternoon to review your work from Day 1 and tackle a second painting after another useful lesson related to the location.
Day 3: The third day is free for you to paint all day.
Day 4: We hold a final short meeting (around an hour) to review and share your work and insights from the course.
The workshop will be recorded so you will be able to watch the video online afterwards.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
Vicki will work in oils but you may use any medium – Vicki often works with a simple, ‘double primary’ palette comprised of Cadmium Lemon yellow, Cadmium Yellow Golden, Cadmium Red Light, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalocyanine Blue Lake or Cerulean Blue, for this workshop Yellow Ochre and Transparent Oxide Red may also be useful. This course isn’t specifically about colour, so just use colours you are familiar with and those you already have.
