Beginners Courses – Week 5 & new courses starting in March 2019.

Hi everyone

In the Beginners Birds Drawing Course this week, we produced a series of timed drawings using soft pastels.  By reducing the time allowed with each drawing we were able to practise making quick sketches that would be helpful if wanting to draw from real life.  The Beginners Pastel Drawing Course used all the skills they have learned so far to create delicious looking drawings of cupcakes (which made us all very hungry by the end of the lesson). The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 1 had twice the work this week as we focused on ears and hair. Great to see you all back in class after our break and beautiful pictures this week.

The course dates for next term have now been announced and full course details can be viewed on the Courses for 2019 page by clicking here.  If you have any questions about the courses or would like to book a place or if you would like to be added to my mailing list then please get in touch either by email at leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk, telephone 07788 871286 or via the Contact page.

See you next week

Beginners Courses – Week 4 and new courses starting March 2019!!

Hi folks

We had a gorgeous, colourful Bullfinch to draw this week in the Beginners Birds Drawing Course, created using oil pastels.  In the Beginners Pastel Drawing Course we looked at scale and proportion whilst still practising all our techniques.  We looked at eyes this week in the Beginners Portraiture Course Level 1.  So much to think about when drawing eyes as they are often considered the most important part of a portrait.  Another great week full of wonderful drawings – keep it up!

Don’t forget there are no lessons next week as we have a week off for half term but classes will resume in the week commencing Monday 25th February.

The course dates for next term have now been announced and full course details can be viewed on the Courses for 2019 page by clicking here.  If you have any questions about the courses or would like to book a place or if you would like to be added to my mailing list then please get in touch either by email at leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk, telephone 07788 871286 or via the Contact page.

See you all soon and as it’s Valentine’s Day….lots of love!

Beginners Courses – Week 3

Hi everyone

This week  the Beginners Birds Drawing Course used collage and pen to create these fantastic pictures of Herons.  The Beginners Pastel Drawing Course did a brilliant job of showing shadows on white objects without using black.  The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 1 also used pastels this week the to show the light and dark tones of noses.  Great work everyone and lots of progress being made already.  Well done.

See you next week.

Wendy
