DESCRIPTION

A two-day workshop working with artist Kittie Jones and learning how to respond to the landscape and its flora and fauna in a lively and interesting way. The course will begin by developing sketchbook drawings around Alnmouth’s varied landscape – the stunning coastline and the wooded river will be used as a starting point for gathering information. Guidance will be given on how to select interesting subject matter and make a number of different visual responses to it, in order to create source material to develop into more sustained mixed media drawings either on location or back in the studio, weather depending! A range of drawing techniques suited to sketching and outdoor working will be explored, with students being encouraged to work in both colour and black and white to create an expressive response to the diverse surroundings.
