IN THE FLESH: 4 DAY 'En Plein Air' & Figure
4 DAY 'En Plein Air' drawing and painting course in the beautiful fishing village of Johnshaven - North East Scotland. Experience the same mercurial coastline that inspired the late, great Joan Eardley.
Thurs, Frid, Sat 10am-5pm, Sun 10am-4:30pm
• Capture village sites, sea waves, light and shoreline.
• Work en plein air (weather permitting), with a cosy studio to frequent.
• Relax and meet like-minded people.
• Consider the addition of figures or mixed media in drawing and/or painting compositions.
• Gather sketches, ideas and studies to work up into at least one large final piece.
As always, tuition will be tailored to the level of each individual.
Everyone is welcome. Beginners through to advanced. This course will run alongside a similar en plein air course concentrating on development of multiple, smaller exploratory studies instead of a large final piece.
