Again based on previous short courses, I will take you through on an individual basis how to tackle a human figure. The aim being always to take you a little bit further along the journey of learning to draw and paint. So this may require drawing a head, or reportage drawings or studying movement. All exercises are designed to challenge and take a bit further forward. Each session will involve an exercise, which is dependant on the requirements of the participants.

This challenging session are all dependant on weather and clouds. If dull or weather is bad the session don¹t happen. But when you are there trying to capture a sunset that will last an hour at the most, it is truly magical experience. Have you ever tried to capture such a glorious event, watch how it constantly can change. It is also very peaceful. I will give you hints as I watch you progress. Please come prepared with a canvas already to go with a blue wash on it. No drawing or pencils, just paint, mainly reds, yellows, blues, bit of green and brown. Beautiful purples as well.
INTENSIVE DRAWING AND PAINTING WEEKEND
10.00 - 12 noon 1.00 - 3.00pm
2nd October - 3rd October
£40 for weekend
The aim of this weekend is to start with a small object, develop into a complete painting, which will involve a human figure. But the challenge is create an artwork that reflects your personality. So you will be taken through a series of exercises that lay down the foundation of the final piece. You will all start with one object, but will end up a painting that reflects you. So be prepared to be challenged, this is not only about painting and what you are about.
