Melanie McIntyre is an artist based in Belper, Derbyshire. Melanie says ‘I have loved to draw and paint since I was a child and have tried lots of different mediums and techniques over the years. I enjoy working with acrylic paints, mainly because they dry quickly and are versatile to use. I also enjoy working with pen and have created a number of detailed artworks and illustrations over the years using this medium.'
Start to Finish - A Painting in 4 weeks
Skill level - Complete beginners
Aimed at those who want to have a go at painting but don't know where to start. No need for prior experience or artistic talent, just come and have some fun and learn something new.
Using acrylics - All the information you need to start your painting, we will aim to prime a stretched canvas, paint the 'ground' and decide on subject matter.
Weeks 2, 3 and 4
We will be working through the painting, learning as we go. Individual help and support will be given throughout to enable each participant to reach their goals.
The emphasis is on enjoyment and becoming familiar with the use of acrylic paint.
Please bring a basic set of acrylic paints (Amazon sell Daler Rowney System 3 (10x22ml) for £10.80 or 8x75ml for £17.20) and a cheap set of acrylic paint brushes.
The paints don't need to be expensive although it helps to have a good quality black and white paint.
