Art Practical: Painting & Drawing the Land

This day course is for nature lovers who would like to express their love of the land through painting and drawing. All welcome but some experience in painting would be useful. In a friendly and supportive group, the tutor will take us through gathering visual references, sketching, colour work and creating a landscape piece of work in your chosen media. Over the day we will spend time out in the landscape, where possible, taking photos and sketch book work. We will 'problem solve' helping us to tackle the challenges that arise in our landscape work by asking the right questions, developing the creative process and compositional skills.
