Beginners Courses – Week 2

Hi folks

Bit of a monochrome week for both courses this week.  After all that colour mixing last week, the Beginners Watercolour Course 2 focused solely on tone and layering of a single colour to create depth in their paintings, with some really effective results.  The Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 1 used charcoal and white pastel to create these fantastic drawings of elephants which also show how individuals can have very different styles even when working from the same subject.  Both really beautiful drawings.  Well done everyone.

See you next week.

Beginners Courses – Week 1

Hi everyone

Great to see everyone back in class this week for a new term with a brand new course.  And how nice of the sun to come out for the occasion too!  The Beginners Watercolour Course 2 started with some exercises to practise colour mixing and brush control – essential skills!  The Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 1 created pencil drawings of a dog and had to really focus on proportion and tone.  A great start everyone, hope you all enjoyed your first lesson.  Next week, something completely different!

See you soon.
