Roger Dellar

Discover the excitement and satisfaction of painting with oils on a two-day workshop with artist Roger Dellar.

We’re delighted that Roger is returning to teach here in coastal East Anglia.  He’s a master in helping others develop painting skills.  Under Roger’s practical guidance you find poise and assurance in your painting as well as new creative observation.  Following the progression of a painting through the duration of the workshop means that you will have a firm understanding of oil techniques.  We also know that you will be inspired by the beautiful riverside surroundings.

In his demos and tutorials Roger gives tips on how to compose and how to handle aspects of oil painting to make vibrant paintings, sharing his techniques for colour mixing, paint application, brushwork, tone, capturing light and reflections.  The immediacy of oil painting is exciting and rewarding, suitable for all standards.

We will be working outside and in the Art Safari Studio, where we will have refreshments and lunch to keep us fuelled.

The Art Safari Studio is on the quayside in the pretty market town of Woodbridge, Suffolk, with fabulous views of the Deben Estuary and its boats from the elevated deck.  The iconic Tide Mill is just a few steps away and the mysterious Anglo-Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo is just across the river.

Enjoy the company of your fellow artists with two fulfilling days of artistic exploration.

To help you prepare we will send you a short list of suggested art materials to bring with you.
