There are many elements necessary to make a successful landscape painting. Nothing connects you to the landscape more than painting from life or on location. In this 4 week program we will have 2 studio sessions exploring fundamentals of composition, tone, colour and outdoor painting techniques. We will look at which equipment you might need to get started. We will then spend 2 sessions painting on location or en plein air.
If ever you wanted to learn to paint on location and were not sure where to begin, this course will be a great introduction and shows you how easy it can be to get started.
You can use any medium you like. For any enquiries or if you require more information. Contact: Julie – 0408 552 432

Testimonials from Students
Having watched Linda on Colour in Your Life, I was captivated by her techniques and use of colour and approached her for one-on-one training.
Over 3 days Linda’s wealth of knowledge and teaching skills has transformed my understanding of painting 100%. Her knowledge and practical skills are delivered in a generous warm manner accompanied with a great sense of humour.
Thanks to Linda, I am now looking forward to practicing the skills I’ve learnt and improving my painting far beyond my previous expectations.Diana Taylor
Members of The Heathcote Artists have just attended a fabulous two day workshop in Heathcote with artist Linda MacAulay. The workshop was inspiring, fun and exhausting. Thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. Over the weekend we learned texturising, glazing and other paint techniques to all produce a set picture. Linda’s easy going, fun style of teaching was infectious. The time flew by and by the end everyone was wishing there were more hours in the weekend! We will definitely be getting Linda back again.Judy Hutchins
I can highly recommend Linda MacAulay as a wonderful acrylic tutor.
Linda has held several weekend workshops for the Anglesea Art House to show us her expertise in how to paint in acrylics. We all learnt much regarding acrylic painting mediums and where and how to use the varied products that art shops try to sell us. How to create textures in our paintings, how to use the “crackle” medium, the use of gold under painting, how to paint beautiful blended skies, and much more.
She is a most competent instructor, very patient, very enthusiastic and works very hard to make sure all in the class get the most from the weekend.Pat McKenzie
During 2016, I have attended a series of workshops offered by Linda Macaulay.
Linda would have to be one of the most generous and patient art teachers I have met. She is only too willing to share her knowledge and takes great delight in her role as a teacher. She leads her students to develop their knowledge of art with a particular focus on understanding the techniques of working with Acrylic paint.
Whilst the classes were often filled with mixed ability students and with varying degrees of art experience, she was always able to offer individual attention so each student progressed.
Her workshop preparation is outstanding and thorough. At the beginning of each workshop she outlines what she intends to cover. When the workshop is concluded, she spends time reviewing what was covered so consolidation may happen. Course notes are presented and provided further reference outside of the workshop environment.
If you want to learn more about ‘Acrylic Painting Techniques’ and wish to do so in an informative, relaxed environment with one of the most knowledgeable and talented artists I have met, then these workshops are for you!
Linda has taken me beyond my experience as a watercolour and mixed media artist to a place where I am LOVING exploring and creating artworks with Acrylic paints.Mary Anderson
