Description:

This course aims to get you drawing with confidence! Starting with the basics we will look first at how to accurately scale whatever you are looking at and fit it onto any size paper. We will start with a still life and cover composition, and ellipses. Shading will be discussed and the different approaches to take when drawing as an art form, as opposed to drawing in preparation for adding paint. After lunch we will move on to working from photographs, using simple rules to understand perspective without any measuring devices or scary maths! Methods will be discussed and demonstrated, leading to a greater understanding and improvement of your drawing skills.

 

Suitable For:

Whether you are a complete beginner looking to start or more experienced but frustrated that your drawing skills aren’t as good as they could be you will find this course equally useful.

Description:

In the morning we look at techniques for drawing and painting effective seascapes. This will include how to approach water, waves, and beautiful sunset skies. We will look at the importance of working with a limited palette and practice several clever watercolour techniques that will make creating a good painting so much easier. Wax resist, lifting out, blending and layering will all be incorporated. We will look in depth at mixing the colours you need for a sunset, and applying them in a way that gives a complex sky with no unwanted drying lines. After a morning of practice we will move on to afternoon painting from photographs. By the end of the day you should be well on the way to creating a beautiful, atmospheric seascape.

Suitable For:

Beginners to advanced: Suitable for advanced students wanting to increase their skill level, but also not beyond the reach of beginners, due to its simplicity and limited palette. Tuition will be tailored to your personal needs.

Description:

If you feel lost with understanding colour mixing this day will help you. We will start with the basics of understanding how colours work when mixed together. No colour wheels, because although technically correct you may not find them helpful. Instead we use simple, practical methods to understand primary, secondary, colour opposites etc. You will learn how to make difficult colours like cream, skin tones and natural greens. I will also teach you to analyse any colour and reproduce it, and what it really means to work in a ‘limited palette’.  Then we will go on to make colour charts that you can take home for future reference.

Suitable For:

Suitable for all levels including complete beginners.
