Breathing Life into Paint (NEW)
Course dates: September 11th - 14th 2017 (Monday - Thursday)
Exploratory drawings have direct energy and freshness. Finding ways of getting that equivalent quality into paint can seem elusive. This course gives you four, full studio days of painting from drawings that you will bring with you. Two weeks before this course you will be emailed with some homework. Simon will ask you to do a 10 minute drawing a day from a view through a window in your home. Different approaches to making the drawings will be suggested, to give you challenges and to make sure that you come on the first day of the course armed with exciting and inspiring studies. During the course Simon will show you through demonstration and instruction how to use the drawings that you bring. You will layer the paint and marks to create vital and beautiful paintings. By the end of four days you will have gained a greater understanding of the process of developing paintings from drawings.
