Paul Weaver. Figures in Watercolour.

Adding figures to a scene can help bring a sense of scale, life and movement to the subject. On this course, Paul will take you through his working methods for sketching directly from the clothed figure, followed by watercolour techniques for simplifying detail and suggesting form and movement.

We will then put this into practice, looking at the key points for planning and adding figures to a simple landscape or street scene.

22nd & 23rd November. Peter Cronin. How to use a Sketchbook.  

When you paint do you always end up trying to copy the photograph, or trying for a more emotional response to the subject but getting lost along the way? If you wish to get more from your artistic endeavours, then developing the ability to keep a sketch book will inevitably lead to paintings that say a lot more than a mere photograph ever could.

This two day workshop will be a mix of studio and outdoor work (weather permitting) where Royal Society of Marine Artist's member Peter Cronin will guide you through his various sketching methods. £95.
