Beginners Courses – Week 4

Hi folks

Halfway through the courses and loads of great work produced already.  This week the Portraiture course worked on eyes – possibly the most important part of a portrait.  The Nature course made some drawings of mussel shells using Indian ink and sticks on a prepared, coloured background.  In the Drawing course we looked at accuracy and how using grids can help to improve proportion skills.  Brilliant work everyone!

Don’t forget there are no classes next week.  Lessons will resume on Monday 30th October.

Enjoy the break and I’ll see you back in class soon.

Beginners Courses – Week 3

Hi everyone

This week the Beginners Portraiture Course focused on noses and used both pencil and soft pastel to show the subtle changes in tone.  In the Beginners Drawing from Nature Course we took advantage of all the gorgeous, autumnal colours we have around at the moment and drew leaves using oil pastels.  The Beginners Drawing Course 1 looked at scale and how to enlarge small objects to create really dramatic charcoal drawings.  Well done everyone, another fantastic week of drawings!

See you all next week.

Beginners Courses – week 2

Hi folks

Here we are in only week 2 of the courses and you are producing some exceptional work.  I’ve loved seeing your drawings this week.  From detailed observations of mouths in the Beginners Portraiture Course to gorgeous Hydrangea pastel drawings in the Beginners Drawing from Nature Course and to compositions of manmade objects in the Beginners Drawing Course 1.  You’re all doing brilliantly and I’m really pleased with how well you are all tackling the different tasks each week.

Looking forward to yet more wonderful creations next week.
