“Pencil and Paper” Part 3 – Week 4 & new courses starting August 2020!

Hi folks

A really tricky challenge this week – reflective objects.  Observation is key in this task in order to spot all the different shapes and tones within the reflections.  You all rose to the challenge and did a great job.  I think the next time you encounter a reflective object in your drawings you’ll know exactly how to handle it.  Great work everyone!  For more photos of this weeks work, visit our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

Next week is the last lesson of the current courses and then we’ll have a short break but the next online courses will be starting on Monday 24th August 2020, so get in touch if you would like to book a place.  Full course details can be found on the Courses for 2020 page by clicking here.  If you have any questions you can contact me by email at:  leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or tel:  07788 871286.

See you soon

“Pencil and Paper” Part 3 – Week 3

Hi everyone

Some fantastic drawings this week!  A bag was our subject this week and what amazing drawings you all managed to create from such an everyday object.  I’m so impressed with the drawings you are producing and I can see you are really observing your subjects and putting all that tone practice from last week into good use.  Brilliant work everyone, keep it up! For more photos of this weeks work, visit our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

See you next week for another challenge!

“Pencil and Paper” Part 3 – Week 2

Hi folks

This week we were letting our imagination loose on these illuminated letters.  Your task was to explore all the different tones and marks you could make with just pencil.  Well done everyone, you created such a wide range of both tones and marks in your drawings.  Great work!  Below are some photos of your work and there are more on our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

See you soon.

“Pencil and Paper” Part 3 – Week 1

Hi everyone

Welcome back to a new term of “Pencil and Paper” Part 3.  We started the course with a classic – still life using natural forms.  We were mainly focusing on shape and proportions and you all did a fantastic job.  Great work everyone and a really good start to the course.  Below are some photos of your work and there are more on our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

I’m also pleased to say that through 10% of your course fees going towards Hope Pastures Animal Sanctuary, together we’ve raised £87.50 for all the horses, ponies and donkeys.  It’s nice to think they might be getting an extra carrot this week thanks to us.    One of our Leeds Art Group members (Sally) volunteers at the sanctuary and passed on their thanks as they have had a big drop in their funds since having to close their gates to the public.  So a big thank you to all you lovely people on behalf of the animals!  For further information about Hope Pastures please visit their website at:  www.hopepastures.org.

See you next week.
