“Inspired 5” – week 3

Hi everyone

Time for some colour this week! We based these fantastic pictures on African printed textiles and used watercolour and collage to create big and bold patterns. I’ve loved seeing all your bright, vibrant patterns this week. They’re enough to cheer anyone up on a rainy afternoon. Well done everyone!

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

See you next week

“Inspired 5” – week 2

Hi folks

Well as it’s week 2, I thought we must all be ready to take on a true master – Leonardo da Vinci! We based these charcoal drawings on one of his paintings – “La Scapigliata” from 1506. This one was a real challenge because there’s no room for error. Even the smallest changes make a huge difference in something like this. But you did not let me down and you’ve created some beautiful drawings this week. Well done everyone for rising to the challenge!

See you soon

Hi folks

A big thank you to everyone currently taking part in Leeds Art Group online courses.

It’s great to know that Leeds Art Group are doing our bit to help them out.

“Inspired 5” – week 1

Hi everyone

Great to have you all back after a week off between courses. We kicked off the new term with these watercolour paintings based on a painting by Paul Klee called “The Harbinger of Autumn”. Difficult to think about Autumn with the soaring temperatures outside at the moment but well done to all of you who managed to produce these fantastic pictures using a layering technique to build up the colours. A great start to the course everybody. Looking forward to next week.
