During this 9-week course you will work on a drawing or painting from the same pose for three sessions.
You can produce quick sketches from different angles, that are always useful for portfolio work or for creating larger compositions, or you can choose to work on a more resolved painting over the 3 weeks.
This course will provide you with the opportunity to move from drawing into painting and to learn how to use colour by simplifying tones and forms to develop your knowledge and awareness 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.
