This three day course will look at drawing and painting the figure in the landscape. You will visit Kirkstall Abbey, take photos on cameras and iPads, and draw/paint the abbey using sketch books, pencils and watercolour paints. We will also experiment, learn life drawing techniques and look at artists Turner and Cotman as well as exploring contemporary painting/drawing. We will be using Inkwell Arts as our studio base. Learners will complete a series of drawings and paintings and engage in informal discussions if you choose. We can provide a small number of cameras/iPads to use and share, or you are welcome to bring your own.
