Details

Starting right from the beginning, this course looks at observational drawing of still life subjects. It covers the importance of lines, how to use them, how different weights of line affect a visual image and goes on to explain tone. As part of the course we will spend short periods of time exploring this wonderful, natural environment to find interesting subjects that we will draw back at the studio. The drawing exercises are split into manageable chunks leading you through the process of collecting visual information and creating simple, effective drawings. Focusing on simple concepts and practical techniques this is the place to start if you are a beginner, or if you are new to pen and ink.

Debora is an enthusiastic art tutor with over 30 years’ experience. All of her courses concentrate on simple concepts and practical techniques and are suitable for everyone; no previous experience is required. Every session has planned content and takes varying approaches to help students build up their own techniques and style.
