Monday 25th April

Three Trees in Bletchley

Colourful Aberdeen AngusColourful Highland Cow. Come to the The Three Trees in Bletchley and paint this Colourful Highland Cow It is amazing what you can do with some paint and brushes. There she is minding her own business and just chewing the cud when all of a sudden she is the centre of Artist’s attraction.  Anyone can paint, you just need a desire said Bob Ross, so come to this great evening and show yourself you can. 

Tickets are from £29.00 downwards, and the ticket price includes ALL materials and equipment, and you will be able to purchase an optional frame for £10.00 if you want.

It doesn’t matter in the least if you haven’t picked up a paint brush for years, because you will walk away with your own unique piece of artwork. Our resident artist will take you, step-by-step, through the process of turning your blank canvas into an amusing picture that you can hang on your wall. With a glass in one hand, and a paintbrush (or a cotton bud) in the other, your skills will transfer painlessly to the canvas on your easel. So power up your inner Picasso and come and join us.

What You Will Learn

You’ll learn simple painting techniques that will help you to develop a realistic shape for this beautiful bovine and then add stylistic brush strokes with vibrant colors to create an impressionistic abstract painting of this long haired cute cow on a bright summer or spring day.

More Of What You Will Learn You'll learn simple painting techniques that will help you to develop a realistic shape for this beautiful bovine and then add stylistic brush strokes with vibrant colors to create an impressionistic abstract painting of this long haired cute cow on a bright summer or spring day. Maybe your cow is eating some hay, or you could put an eye on for him to look at the camera. You'll learn how to draw a simple outline that will guide you through the painting. You'll learn how to add dimension in the shape, form and fur of the animal with the use of strategically placed shadows and contour lines that will provide structure to the image. You'll also learn how to layer the colors in an order that doesn't convolute or confuse the visual affects in order to achieve balance and movement in the long locks. The horns will bring a bit of realism to the image with the use of natural colors. With a slight tilt to the head, properly placed features, and the movement of the abundance of curly hair, this sweet looking animal will bring joy to you as he comes to life on your canvas. The soft background color is neutral and complimentary, but you could make yours blue and white to resemble the sky with clouds, or dark to look like the inside of a barn. With the construction of the composition you'll learn to paint this energetic beefy friendly beast with a pleasant personality. Customize the cow if you’d like with different color fur, a bell around it's neck, or a tag hanging from it's ear. Creativity is always encouraged, just have fun with it! This painting is sure to impress the viewer and compliment the décor of any room. Using only 3 brushes and 7 colors we'll create this conversational masterpiece with a magnificent endearing and enchanting animal who’s excited about the day in front of him. So let's get painting and let's get drinking. This animal is inspired by the Highland cow, which is a Scottish breed of rustic cattle. It originated in the Scottish Highlands and the Outer Hebrides islands of Scotland and has long horns and a long shaggy coat. Maybe your animal is inspired by a different breed of cattle, or maybe you paint it as a dog, cat, or bird... use your imagination to create a unique abstract animal portrait with a fun painterly style!
