We will develop our skills of using oil pastel by making big bold flower drawings similar to the style of Georgia O’Keefe and will also have the opportunity to use blending sticks, white spirit and tissue paper to mix the colour. Paper will be supplied but please bring oil pastels if you have them.

Over 2 weeks we will focus on human figures from magazine pictures, paying particular attention to the proportions of the limbs. We will learn how to build up the skin tones through several layers of washes and dry brushing. Please bring paint brushes.

3RD & 10TH JULY – GRAPHITE, COLOURED PENCIL, INK & PEN

This week we will combine all four techniques to whilst drawing a still life collection of objects. You will be able to develop a figurative and expressive style using bold outlines alongside delicate colour blending. Please bring cartridge paper and brushes if you have them.

All art materials will be available at class but in order to improve your skills it is advisable to have your own paper and brushes so that you can practice at home! If you know that you will be missing a class I will be happy to explain what you have missed.
