The Dynamic Still Life

Now Offered as an Online Course The Dynamic Still Life takes the everyday objects we all have around the house and uses them as characters in the drama of painting. This is a three day online course led by Simon Carter. The course is a celebration of painting and drawing using familiar everyday objects in the setting of your house. The aim is for dynamic, fierce and energetic drawing which will lead to freedom and bold improvisations in paint.

'Long summer days and outside spaces'

Online Course Start a daily practise that becomes a personal project and a body of work

In the height of summer the days are luxuriously long. With the dawn at 4.45 am and the sun finally setting at 9.20 pm I always feel that I want to make the most of the light and be outside as much as I can. I wish these long days could continue but Nature has its own pace and rhythm governed by the sunrise, sunset, the seasons and the weather. These long days will shorten and the summer will become a longed for memory again. So while it is here what better way to celebrate and honour it than to make the most of the long days by painting and drawing in those quiet magical times when the birds are waking up or the sun is sinking towards the horizon giving long shadows and rich colours. This summer school is about being immersed in those magical moments. Many of us are having to spend much more time at home, not travelling and staying safe. This means that it is possible to get up early and, whilst still in pyjamas with a mug of tea, go outside and draw before the rest of the world wakes up. If you are more of a night owl than a lark then perhaps your preferred time would be as the day draws to a close. Or both of course.
