This course is for people of all abilities, with step-by-step demonstrations throughout as well as particular focus on colour-mixing (from a limited few) in relation to matching the colours of nature. There will be a mixture of outdoor and studio work.
We will look for outside reference, ideas and inspiration within the grounds to create our own artwork working outdoors if possible, as well as developing ideas in the studio. My aim is to try and capture something of the mood and atmosphere of the place and the moment as simply and directly as possible. I recommend that students work in sketchbooks/workbooks (cartridge and watercolour paper) to build up a visual diary that can then be used for further reference and experimentation.
