Painting and Drawing
with Terry Thompson
15th-22nd August 2020


About the workshop

Working in the landscape and in the studio, Terry will encourage you to develop your own interpretations of your chosen subject. Emphasis is placed on helping you extend your horizons in both the treatment of the subject and in the media used; experimentation and innovation being the keys. Using what you see around you as raw material you will be making images using drawing media and water-based paints (watercolour, gouache, or acrylic). Terry will encourage you to examine the key elements of picture making with the aim of moving towards a more abstract reading of the landscape
