Beginners Courses – Week 4 & New Gustav Klimt Pattern Workshop

Hi everyone

The Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 1 used soft pastel to draw this lovely, mucky pig this week.  Pastel is a messy business and difficult to control but you all did really well with it.  In the Beginners Birds Drawing Course we used oil pastels to create the gorgeous, vibrant colours of bullfinches.  The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 2 used fineliner pen and a cross hatching technique to show tone in these fantastic portraits.  Brilliant work everyone!

I’m pleased to announce a brand new 1 day pattern workshop based on the work of Gustav Klimt on Monday 6th May 2019 10.00am – 2.30pm.  For full details please go to the Courses for 2019 page or click here.  Places are filling up fast so get in touch if you would like to book a place.   Tel: 07788 871286 or email leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or use our “Contact” page.

Don’t forget there are no classes next week as we have a break for Easter but we are back in class from Monday 29th April.

Have a great Easter weekend and I’ll see you all soon.

Beginners Courses – Week 3

Hi folks

This week the Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 1 produced some fantastic watercolour paintings of giraffes. The Beginners Birds Drawing Course created herons using collage and the Beginners Portraiture Course Level 2 had a couple of life models (thanks Shuchita and Harry) to practice what we have covered so far.  Lots of different challenges for the different groups but all produced brilliant work.  Keep it up!

See you next week.

Beginners Courses – Week 2

Hi everyone

It was elephant week this week for the Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 1.  I love this lesson as it always produces such great work.  We had a fabulous parade of charcoal elephants by the end of the lesson. In the Beginners Birds Drawing Course we created colourful drawings of Kingfishers using soft pastels.  The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 2 continued to look at tone and the contours of the face by producing these black and white paintings.  Well done everyone!  I’ve really enjoyed this week’s lessons, hope you have too.

See you all next week.

Wendy
