Beginners Drawing Course 2 – Week 5 + Summer Exhibition

Leave a comment

Welcome back to everyone after our half term break.  We kicked off the second half of the course by trying something a bit different.  Using fineliner pens instead of pencils we created different tones by using cross hatching techniques.  We had to work out how to show where the light falls on the objects and the shadows this creates whilst also using cross hatching  to show differences in the colours of the objects.  Not an easy task but I knew you could handle it.

It’s time to start believing in your own abilities now.  You’ve all improved so much since lesson one that you should now have more confidence in your work.  With that in mind I’m very pleased to announce that Leeds Art Group will be holding it’s first ever Summer Exhibition at Costellos Bakery, 61 Otley Road, Headingley, Leeds, LS6 3AB on 14th & 15th August 2015.  A bakery may seem like an odd place for an exhibition but rest assured that Costellos have a big room upstairs where we can display our masterpieces and as most of you already know, Costellos also offer 10% off all food and drinks to Leeds Art Group members (just show your card at the till).  So that’s two very good reasons for visiting Costellos!

If you would like to submit a piece of work for the exhibition please email me at leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk (or use the contact page) and I will send you all the details.  It’s free to submit and it’s open to anyone who has ever taken part in a Leeds Art Group course.  So don’t be shy, let’s show everyone what we can do!

I’ll look forward to seeing all your works of art!
