Beginners Courses – Week 5

Hi everyone

In the Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 3 this week we painted these fantastic frogs using watercolour.  A difficult medium to get the hang of but you all produced some brilliant paintings. The Beginners Drawing Course Level 1 did some timed drawings to focus on how to build up a picture from start to finish.  Fabulous work once again – keep it up!

See you all next week

Beginners Courses – Week 4

Hi folks

This week the Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 3 used soft pastels to create these colourful bee drawings. In the Beginners Drawing Course Level 1 we drew from photos of Italian statues to practise shading in different tones. We’re already halfway through the courses and I’m really pleased with how well you’re all doing.  You should be starting to feel a bit more confident about your drawings now.

See you soon.

Beginners Courses – Week 3

Hi everyone

In the Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 3 this week we used sticks to apply Indian ink to our prepared backgrounds and created these really effective drawings of lobsters. The Beginners Drawing Course Level 1 worked on scale this week and used both charcoal and white pastel to produce enlarged drawings of natural forms.  Brilliant work this week, hope you all enjoyed it.
