Oil and Cold wax Landscape Painting Workshops


Come and spend some time developing your painting skills in a relaxing, supportive environment.


Workshops are open to all abilities, being small groups only they are individually tailored to ability. As well as creating my own work Ive taught art for over 30 years. The workshops take place in a beautiful warm light filled room in the village pavilion in Horton in Ribblesdale, near Settle, where we can take advantage of the views and the surrounding beautiful Yorkshire Dales.























This is a day spent drawing and painting inside and outside in the landscape.

You will have the opportunity to use Wallace Seymour ancient drawing materials (stones and crushed earth pigment) to begin your drawing session and loosen you up to look for the different layers in the landscape, moving on to planning and developing small oil and cold wax paintings on paper. Hopefully some of the day will be spent drawing outdoors where you are more able to capture the atmosphere, but that is weather dependent!

You will be shown different application techniques and tools, building up and working back into layers of textures and the use of cold wax medium and paints to create different effects in your work.


All you need to bring is your lunch, a willingness to experiment, old warm clothes, a wind/waterproof (after all it is winter/spring in the Dales!) and sensible footwear for grassy and rocky footpaths. All materials and equipment are provided. If you would prefer to keep clothes clean and wear an apron please bring your own, disposable gloves are provided.




















Horton in Ribblesdale is on the Settle-Carlisle line so possible by public transport. Workshops are family friendly (age 14 upwards). Please state if mobility is difficulty so that drawing venues can be modified. There are steps at the venue.

Penny's workshop gave me the confidence to explore new techniques and the umph I needed to play with my materials again after a period of doubting myself. Jess

Penny was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and really helped me feel confident. We worked with different textures, building backgrounds that we were much more experimental and didn't get too fussy. It was lovely and has really inspired me to paint more! Thoroughly recommend! Poppy


I was excited by the workshop and can't wait to try out some more of the ideas. I wanted to loosen up a little in my own painting and not be quite so bound by the actual. I wanted to explore a slightly more ethereal /abstract approach and I felt that Penny addressed what I wanted and gave me ideas. Gabrielle
