This course is for those who enjoy walking and wish to record their impressions of the landscape. The skill of the quick sketch is an art form of its own. This course is designed to develop your skills in producing quick sketches on location, increasing your confidence and enjoyment and absorbing enough detail to develop future projects. Prior drawing ability is not required, just an enthusiasm to explore different approaches to drawing and sketching. The intention is to walk each day for a distance of around five miles, at an easy pace, stopping at intervals to sketch and discuss the inspirations of the scenes around us. We will take a picnic lunch. Time in the studio, including evenings, will be spent on demonstrations, exercises and discussions on colour, tone and composition.

Bring a friend!

Linda Matthews has worked as a full time artist and tutor for 18 years. She is inspired by everything around her, she enjoys sharing the essentials of watercolour in the studio so you can experience fully the freedom of painting from life - en plein air - out of doors. She works professionally in most media. Her philosophy for painting is ‘Wherever you look there is something to paint. You can never be bored with a pencil, a sketchbook and a paintbox’.
