Fire In The Sky

Sunday 14th November

Westbury Arts Centre

 

Fire In The Sky. Come and paint this stupendous Bob Ross based Fire In The Sky, a Galaxy blazing across the night sky, lighting up the mountains and reflected in the lake. This is another full Bob Ross style painting day. It’s not an “official” Bob Ross painting but a modified one. Based on an idea by Katherine Pender-Sheppard.

GIN WILL BE SERVED AT LUNCHTIME.

 

Fire In The Sky – You Don’t Need Skill, Just A Desire To Paint

After about an hour of looking at the night sky, with no light pollution, your eyes get accustomed to the darkness and you see the night firmament in all its shining glory. This full day event will be held at Westbury Arts Centre, Foxcovert Road, Shenley Wood, MK5 6AA. As well as our full day painting lessons in Milton Keynes, we also do painting evenings in Pubs and Bars.

The Bob Ross technique helps people produce a fully detailed beautiful painting within a very short time. It uses the wet-on-wet style of painting and a number of specially designed paints, knives, brushes to produce clouds, mountains, trees and water within minutes. These longer workshops are designed to help you produce more detailed paintings than our evening events. Learn more about Bob Ross and The Joy of Painting.

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, though then process of turning your blank canvas into your own special masterpiece. With a glass in one hand, and a paintbrush in the other, your skills will transfer painlessly to the canvas on your easel. You are guaranteed to produce a beautiful painting that you will be proud to hang on your wall.

As always, we provide everything that you need…… a 40cm x 80cm, or 50cm x 70cm canvas, easel, brushes, paints, aprons, music and a great atmosphere where you can create to your heart’s content.

The Bob Ross Technique

The Bob Ross technique helps people produce a fully detailed beautiful painting within a very short time.

Furthermore, these longer workshops are designed to help you produce more detailed paintings than our evening events. Learn more about Bob Ross and The Joy of Painting.

The Bob Ross technique is a style of painting that requires the Bob Ross equipment, materials and techniques. You will need to follow the Bob Ross method to get the best possible picture though. There will be some opportunity to go off-piste, but following the Bob Ross process work’s best.

The event starts at 10.30 am but arrive around 15 minutes early. Grab a seat, grab a cuppa and grab an easel. We start at 10.30, and will definitely by finished by 16.30.  Westbury Arts Centre doesn’t have a bar, but GIN WILL BE SERVED at lunchtime.

Although we provide aprons, it might be worth wearing old clothes (just in case). Be warned that we will be using oil paints, and these take anything from a couple of days to a week to dry. It will be easy to take your painting home if you buy a frame. But if you don’t buy one then we have a way to protect your painting so that you can take it home.
