“Inspired 4” and “Pencil & Paper 2” – week 1

Hi everyone

It’s so good to have you all back after a couple of weeks break. It feels like spring has sprung since our last lesson. So what better way to start the “Inspired 4” course than with these roses based on a painting by Renoir? We focused on colour mixing and creating contrasts. The “Pencil & Paper 2” course started by drawing chairs and looking at all the negative spaces inbetween the spindles and legs as well as how the light falls on the object.

A brilliant start to the course everyone! I can’t wait to see what else you can do.

See you all next week.

“Inspired 3” – week 5 & New courses starting April 2021

Hi folks

Easter is on it’s way and to celebrate you’ve been drawing these beautiful decorated egg designs based on traditional Ukrainian “Pysanky” eggs. The real eggs would normally be decorated using a wax resist technique but we used watercolour pencils which are great for creating all those intricate details and bright colours. Fantastic work everyone and a great finish to the current “Inspired 3” course.

We’ve now got a short break over Easter but the “Inspired 4” course and the “Pencil & Paper 2” course will be starting in the week commencing Monday 19th April (exactly a year after our very first online lesson!). For full course details go to our Courses for 2021 page. If you have any questions or would like to book a place please get in touch either by email: leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or tel: 07788 871286.

Below are some of this week’s pictures and you can see more on our Instagram page at: @leedsartgroup

Thank you to everyone who has joined me for the past 5 weeks.

Have a lovely Easter and I hope to see you soon
