About the Event

Oil Painting, learn to paint Florals with Robin Danely

Saturday 19th March 2022

10.30am - 4.30pm

In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to create expressive paintings of flowers in oil paint, for beginner to intermediate artists. 

We will cover basic colour theory, paint mixing and application, useful composition tips, and will concentrate on the use of value to render our subject in a realistic and dynamic way. Experience helpful but not in any way required!

You will need to provide your own materials - we decided that it would make the Workshop prohibitively expensive if we bought all the kit that you would need.  The good news is that in buying everything yourself, you will have the tools you'll need to carry on gloriously painting, with all your new found knowledge, at home!

Suggested materials:

2-4 surfaces to paint on: can be canvas, canvas board, wooden board, paper, etc. I like paper because it’s inexpensive and light, but often needs to be primed with gesso first (unless it’s specifically oil painting paper). 

20 x 25 cm or A4 or similar is ideal. 

Please be aware that you will have to transport wet paintings home at the end of the day — I will show you how to pack them up and will bring some extra materials for this purpose.

Suggested suppliers:

Brushes: 5-6 brushes in varying sizes, ideally medium/smaller sizes like 2, 4, 6, 8, 10. Synthetic or synthetic blend are fine, or natural bristles if you prefer. I like flats, but filberts and brights are good, too. Rounds are not as versatile, I’ve found.

Suggested suppliers:



Or maybe this set which includes some of each:

A palette: can be wood, glass, plexiglass, or disposable pad. I’m averse to paying money for a palette, when you can easily use a piece of plexiglass, glass, or masonite board primed with gesso.

A palette knife: I like a 5-8cm blade, but it’s up to you! (I have a handful of extras which I will bring along)

Suggested suppliers:

Paints: ultramarine blue, cadmium red hue, cadmium yellow hue, and white will be required; yellow ochre, burnt sienna, Payne’s grey are optional.

Suggested suppliers:

Linseed oil: this will be used both as a medium and for cleaning your brushes, so I suggest either 250mL or 500mL

Suggested suppliers:

Kitchen towels or clean cloth rags

Age 17+ (no exceptions)

PLACES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE & NON-TRANSFERABLE - if your plans change, please don't ask us to refund/transfer your place (have a look at our t's & c's below for more info).

COVID PRECAUTIONS: We ask that you please  wash/sanitise your hands regularly throughout the sessions - the wearing of masks is now up to the individual. 

The studio space is vigorously cleaned before & after all sessions during this time.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do get in touch with us:

If you are feeling unwell, we ask that you please don't risk the health of others, please refrain from coming to the studio.

We hate being this strict - but we'd hate anyone to come to any harm!




Due to an extremely small admin team, the time it takes up and the financial difficulty it causes the HSA, we are unable to offer refunds / transfers to another session / gift vouchers for orders made in error, changed plans or a changed mind. Please bear this in mind BEFORE placing an order.

We are unable to offer refunds / transfers to another session / gift vouchers for forgotten/missed sessions which are the responsibility of the purchaser.

In the extremely rare case where a refund is issued there will be a service charge taken for our time and the payment/booking charges we have incurred.

If it's our fault:

If you're unable to attend the session through a mishap/error on our part, we will make sure you are provided with a voucher to attend any forthcoming sessions of the same type - alternatively we will issue a refund or find another solution.

The income from all our sessions is used to pay for our brilliant tutors, models & photographers, the rent on our studio, overheads and of course to pay the salaries of the hard working folk behind the scenes.
