About the Workshop

A week working out in the landscape and in the studio exploring the relationship between drawing and painting. We will be immersing ourselves in the landscape, walking as we draw.

Drawing is rightly seen as the foundation of art, but its relationship to developing our painting is often neglected. The focus for the week is on compositional design, space and mark making. Our morning sessions of preparatory drawing will encourage the innovative use of mixed media materials. Afternoons are spent painting in any media you like, extending and exploring your use of colour, with reference to the drawings and paintings produced in the morning.

This course is suitable for all levels of experience and to take full advantage of the week you will need to be adventurous, energetic and willing to experiment.
