Event description
John Dobbs NEAC SWLA leads a 'plein air' workshop, sketching & painting using the river / harbour area near Heatherley’s School of Art

About this event

The aim of this workshop is to work as simply and unselfconsciously as possible. To try and capture the essence of the subject so that it gives you the experience of what you see.

Meeting at Heatherleys, this workshop will focus on 'plein air' painting and drawing using the river / harbour area near Heatherley’s School of Art with its array of architectural styles and developments that characterise the area.

Students will produce a collection of sketches by the end of the day.

About your tutor:  John Dobbs NEAC SWLA works mainly in oils, either direct from life or from drawings. He trained as a Draughtsman in electrical engineering before becoming a full time artist in 2003. He was awarded the NEAC Drawing Scholarship in 2012, and was elected a member of the NEAC in 2015. He was also elected a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists in 2019, having shown with them for the past three years.
