Overcome any fears you might have about sketching and painting outdoors in this interesting and really enjoyable workshop. Using both drawing and painting techniques, which will be demonstrated beforehand, you’ll work both in landscape and village-scape settings, with one-to-one guidance throughout the day on location (weather permitting). In the daily studio session before we head outdoors, we will cover basic sketching techniques, simple watercolour demonstrations, important ways to improve your drawing and keys to good composition, among many other issues. While outdoors, John will demonstrate these techniques as well as advise each participant on a one-to-one basis, depending on their level of experience. These workshops can book out quickly so book soon if you’re interested.
Suitable for all all levels in all media, including Oils and Acrylics, but demonstrations on this workshop will be primarily with Pencil, Pen and Watercolour techniques. If weather is unsuitable we will work in one of the studios in Schoolhouse for Art.
