Beginners Courses – Week 2

Hi folks

A colourful week for us this week with the Beginners Birds Drawing Course creating these beautiful pastel drawings of Kingfishers.  The Beginners Pastel Drawing Course experimented with different techniques to produce vibrant still life pictures.  The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 1 focused on mouths this week using pencil and pen to create interesting tone effects.  Lots of great drawings this week and it was difficult to narrow it down to just these four.

For all you budding exhibitors, the Ilkley Art Show is now accepting submissions for it’s exhibition on 16th & 17th August 2019.  Click on this link for further information:  www.Ilkleyartshow.co.uk.

See you all next week.

Happy New Year! Beginners Courses – Week 1

Welcome back everyone!

Hope you all had a good break and a great Christmas.  A warm welcome to all our new students this year aswell.  We started the brand new Beginners Birds Drawing Course with some scraperboard drawings of Starlings.  This meant sort of working in negative as you had to scrape away the lighter areas.  The Beginners Pastel Drawing Course worked from photos of Impressionist paintings to practise mark making and colour mixing.  The Beginners Portraiture Course – Level 1 started with the basic proportions of the head – the fundamentals for a good portrait.  Fantastic work everyone!  Hope you all enjoyed your first lesson and I’m looking forward to seeing what else you can do throughout the rest of the course.

See you all next week.

Wendy
