“Inspired 4”, “Pencil & Paper 2” – week 5 and new courses starting June 2021!

Hi everyone

This week the “Inspired 4” course created these colourful and intricate paintings based on printmaker and illustrator Hannah Firmin. For the “Pencil and Paper 2” course, I asked you to draw the view from your window in a quick sketching style. What a great way to finish the current courses! The work you’ve produced over the past few weeks has been absolutely wonderful and a pleasure to see. Thank you to all of you for putting in so much effort. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have.

Time for a week off now but courses will resume next week with the “Inspired 5” course and the “Pencil & Paper 3” course starting in the week commencing Monday 7th June. 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.

“Inspired 4”, “Pencil & Paper 2” – week 4 and new courses starting June 2021!

Hi folks

As the rain pours down outside my window I’m so glad I’ve got all your vibrant, colourful pictures to brighten my day. This week the artist Franz Marc was inspiring us in the “Inspired 4” course with his paintings of animals in every colour going! In the “Pencil and Paper 2” course we tackled ellipses, tone, proportion and detail – all wrapped up in one tin. Fantastic work everyone – keep it up!

We’ve got one more week of the current courses before a short break but we will return with the “Inspired 5” course and the “Pencil & Paper 3” course starting in the week commencing Monday 7th June. 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.

“Inspired 4” and “Pencil & Paper 2” – week 3

Hi everyone

Nice to see you all again after our week off. I’ve really enjoyed all the beautiful photos you’ve been sending me this week. In the “Inspired 4” course we continued the Art Deco theme but in a very different way with these colourful watercolour paintings based on Clarice Cliff pottery. In the “Pencil and Paper 2” course we looked at different types of fastenings and used tone to create the impression of overlapping.

Another week of great pictures everyone. Looking forward to next week’s masterpieces.

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

Hi folks

This week the “Inspired 4” course went all Art Deco with these paintings based on the work of Tamara de Lempicka from the 1920s/1930s. A tough task but a great way to practice blending from one tone to another. The “Pencil and Paper 2” course used plants as their subject and focused on observing how leaves overlapping can create different shapes and tones.

Fantastic work everyone! It may be a typically wet bank holiday Monday but it’s perfect weather for being indoors and getting arty.

No classes this week but I’ll see you all when lessons resume in the week commencing Monday 10th May.
