Beginners Pastel & Drawing Courses – Week 3

Hi folks

This week I gave you all some really tricky challenges and it was great to see how you all embraced the tasks.  The Beginners Drawing Course Level 2 took on “The Pinecone Challenge”.  This is always a tricky one and you really had to concentrate to achieve this level of accuracy, well done!  The Beginners Pastel Drawing Course had to deal with a mainly white still life and had to get creative with their colour mixing for the shadows.  Fantastic work everone.  I’m so pleased with how you’re all doing so far.

Don’t forget there are no classes next Monday (17th April) as it’s the Easter Monday bank holiday.  Hope you all have a lovely Easter and I’ll see you all back in class on Monday 24th April 2017.


P.S.  There is a Chinese Calligraphy Workshop in Leeds on 26th April (not run by Leeds Art Group).  Further details can be found on their website here:   https://lbchinesecalligraphy.eventbrite.co.uk

Beginners Pastel & Drawing Courses – Week 2

Hi everyone

Only week 2 of the courses and you’re already producing fantastic work!  The Beginners Drawing Course Level 2 continued to work on shading techniques by making some observation drawings of plants.  You all managed to get a really good range of tones, well done.  The Beginners Pastel Drawing Course created some really colourful and vibrant drawings of still life.  Great work everyone, I really enjoyed seeing the work you produced this week, hope you enjoyed it too.

There is a painting/drawing workshop at CafeLux in Pudsey on Sunday 16th April that might be of interest to some of you.  It’s 10am – 3pm and costs £35 which includes all materials.  This isn’t run by Leeds Art Group so please contact the course tutor Paul Ashton at: paulashton6969@gmail.com for further info.

See you all next week.
