About this Event

Interpreting the Landscape

In this one week intensive course, students will be coached through the various stages of taking paintings from sketchbooks through studies, to paintings.

Using the beautiful landscape around Findhorn, students will spend a day drawing on location and gathering source material from which they will work in the studio for the rest of the week.

The drawings will be developed into prints, collage and small studies before being reworked into more resolved paintings. We will discuss line and tone, colour and composition, mark making and surface. Students will be encouraged to develop their own personal response to the landscape and to take away with them a series of studies reflecting their time spent in this environment.

Throughout the course we will look at the work of contemporary artists in conjunction with our studies.

Over the course of the week students will have learned how to…

*undertake research and location drawing,

*develop sketches into paintings

*prepare surfaces and grounds

*work with monotype printing

*Use acrylic paint and understand colour palettes

*work in series

*produce resolved studies in paint

All levels of experience are welcome.All necessary materials will be provided and light lunches and refreshments will be available. Please notify us at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.
