Beginners Drawing, Pastel and Watercolour Courses – Week 6

I think you could say you all “upped your game” this week.  Self portraits are always difficult but you really rose to the challenge in both the drawing class and the pastel class.  The watercolour class had a different type of challenge as they practised some figure painting ready for next weeks life model.  It was great to see you all letting yourselves go and producing some quick sketches.  Figure drawing for everyone next week and I can’t wait to see what you can achieve.

See you all next week.

Beginners Drawing, Pastel and Watercolour Courses – Week 5

This week the drawing class did a series of timed drawings to work on their speed and to help work out how to build up a drawing from just a quick sketch.  The pastel class worked on scale and produced some really vibrant drawings of enlarged everyday objects.  The watercolour class took advantage of all the beautiful Autumn leaves we have at the moment and produced some great paintings with loads of colour.  I can see real improvements in everyone’s work now.  Think back to week one and see for yourself how much you’ve improved.  Well done everyone!

See you next week.

Beginners Drawing, Pastel and Watercolour Courses – Week 3

It seems like Autumn arrived this week but thankfully you didn’t let the bad weather stop you from coming to class.  In the Drawing class we looked at scale and how to draw with charcoal and chalk, the Pastel class worked on how to use white effectively and in the watercolour class we experimented with different techniques for creating sky effects.  Well done everyone, I can see you are all making progress.

See you soon.
