Clova Stuart-Hamilton: A Workshop on 'Expressive Landscape Drawing - learning from Van Gogh'

Thursday 13 September 2018

 We will send round a list of materials a couple of weeks beforehand but while you are out and about over the summer you may like to give some thought to this.  Clova has asked us to bring a selection of clear landscape photographs, preferably your own, on which to base your drawing using the techniques explained.  If not, a suitable calendar image would work.

* It is important the image has the potential for expressing a wide range of textures e.g. water, stone, gravel, tiles, masonry, sand, variety of foliage, grass

*  Also has fore, middle and background

A)  A rural scene - cottages, farm buildings, fields etc.

B)  Garden, trees, shrubs, garden buildings, paths, flower beds

C)  A not too complex street scene

D)  Harbour/port scene with boats, groynes, water etc.


All meetings are held in the Northcourt Centre, Abingdon OX14 1NS unless otherwise stated and start at 7.30 pm.  Fee for non members is £4.
