Beginners Pastel, Watercolour and Drawing Courses – Week 7

Sadly this week was the last lesson for all three courses but what a finale!  You all made a great job of drawing our life model.  We mainly concentrated on proportion and made a series of sketches/paintings using various techniques to get the proportion just right.  Well done, you all did brilliantly and I hope you’ll join us for future Leeds Art Group Courses (especially Kate who brought in the Lemon Drizzle Cake – delicious!).  Get in touch if you need any information about further courses or visit the  Courses for 2015  page.  The next courses will be starting on 23rd March, so contact me if you’d like to book a place.  Give yourselves a pat on the back for all the progress you’ve made this term.  It’s been an absolute pleasure teaching you all and I’ll look forward to seeing you soon.

Beginners Pastel, Watercolour and Drawing Courses – Week 6

The Pastel Class and Drawing class  tackled probably the lesson people dread the most this week – self-portraits, but once you’d started with a few guidelines you did really well in adding all the varied details of the face that give us our individual faces. I think some of you produced your best work so far this week, well done!  The Watercolour class did some paintings of the human figure to prepare them for next week when our life model comes in to pose for us.  It’s life drawing for everyone next week and sadly it’s also the last lesson of the course.  The dates have now been confirmed for next terms courses so have a look on the “Courses For 2015” page for further information and get in touch if you’d like to book a place.

See you all next week.

P.S.  I almost forgot to say thank you to John and Simon for bringing in the wonderful cakes again. Yum!

Beginners Pastel, Watercolour and Drawing Courses – Week 5

You did some really great work this week folks.  The Pastel class looked at scale by taking small everyday objects and enlarging them.  The Watercolour class  painted leaves on a contrasting background to really experiment with their colour mixing and put into practise all the techniques that they have learned so far.  The Drawing class did some timed drawings to work on their speed  but also to help them identify the key elements of a drawing first before adding detail.  Well done, you are all really grasping the key points we’ve covered in the courses so far.  Looking forward to seeing what you produce next week.

See you soon.
