During this 12-week course you will work from a pose sustained by the model for three weeks.
You can choose to produce sketches from different angles or you might want to work on a more resolved painting during each three week block.
This is an opportunity to move from drawing into painting, to practice simplifying form and tone and to increase awareness and knowledge of colour.
This course is suitable for those with some experience in life drawing.
Charcoal and paper are provided but it is recommended that you bring paints, brushes, odourless turps and/or pastels along with canvas or paper.
