You will begin this workshop by painting simplified figure shapes and postures, using your brush as a drawing tool. Finding strong lights on people (heads, shoulders etc.) will be explored with a monochrome image. Perspective will be touched on when adding figures to a street scene. Later all these elements will be incorporated into a townscape where strong light, counter change and shadows play an important part.
Includes homemade lunch, refreshments and cream tea
