Event description

Description

Painting directly from observation and trusting first instincts, students will be encouraged to work as unselfconsciously as possible.

The morning will be taken up with fast painting or drawing on numerous boards or suitable surfaces, where you will need to get things down as quickly as possible, so no fiddling with (or dilution of) first impressions. In the afternoon, you will work on one larger canvas or surface, having more time, using the morning's exercises to carry this work forward.

About your tutor: John Dobbs NEAC SWLA 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. He has shown with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters since 2010 and has shown with the Royal British Artists. He has also previously exhibited in The Discerning Eye and Lynn Painter Stainers Prize.

Materials to bring: 4 or 5 small painting or drawing surfaces (canvas, card, acrylic paper, paper, pastel paper etc) and one surface as large as possible for the afternoon (preferably about A1). Paint, brushes, charcoal, chalk. General working materials.

There is a materials shop on site if required.

There are tea and coffee making facilities on site and cafes nearby - but you might want to bring a packed lunch.

Cost: £60.00 (+ booking fee) for the day
