Week 1:  Autumn still life

Week 2:  Individual autumn still life studies using flat brushes

Week 3:  Flowers, berries and leaves using large brushes

Week 4:  Studies of large leaves on large paper, adding drawings, using inks etc.

Week 5:  Square formats - subject of your choice

Week 6:  Square format - Black and white, strong contrasts

Week 7:  Layers and shapes and subtle abstracts.  Look back at your old paintings or pictures upside down as a starting point

Week 8, 9 and 10:  Choose a favourite theme to work on for the last 3 weeks, a portrait, photo, object or anything that inspires you.  Prepare an interesting background in advance for week 8.  Cutouts and colour and more will be the aim for weeks 9 and 10.
