Draw Paint Film Club - Grand Budapest Hotel

How can we have made it to our eighth Draw Paint Film workshop without even the mention of a Wes Anderson film! We won’t be around for the next few weeks as we take a quick break to have look and see how we can - not so much imprrrooove the night as we already think it’s banging but just how we can make it best for everyone and assess everything over the last few weeks!.

So we’ll pretend we had this all planned out from the start - that we were saving the best till last, our creme de le creme of film stills; our cherry on top of that delicious sponge. GrandBudapest Hotel has to be one of the most surreal, uncanny, shot to perfection, compositionally stunning films we’ve seen at Stills and Paint. We can’t wait to paint from this beauty on Thursday night!!


As ever we have a bring your own bottle policy. So, grab a tinny and park yourself down for a fun night of painting and great chat!

We encourage people to bring their own materials. We all have different personal tastes in terms of quality and method when it comes to painting. There is no one size fits all! It's important you work with a brand and material you are comfortable with. If you need any guidance on purchasing materials, and what is best for you please feel free to send us a message through our facebook page (link at bottom of page).

However , we also realise that this is an introduction to painting for many people so these can be provided.

Learning to draw from film stills is an amazing skill to develop. Increasingly, more and more artists work from photographs. Film stills give you access to quality formatted photography where every aspect of the image has been considered. It is a fascinating method of learning the technical devices of painting and drawing.
