Breathing Life Into Paint – 13th Sept – 4th Oct
Tutor: Claire Barnett
Date: 13th Sept – 4th Oct
Time: 10.30 – 1.30
Exploratory drawings have direct energy and freshness. Finding ways of getting that equivalent quality into the paint can seem elusive. This course gives you four, half studio days of painting from drawings that are created in situ. Your inspiration will be the views of the land and sea. Feel free to bring sketchbooks of drawings that relate to this theme, if you have them. Claire will ask you to do a series of ten-minute drawings. Different approaches to making the drawings will be suggested, to give you challenges and to ensure you are armed with exciting and inspiring studies (this is an essential part of the course, providing the subject and impetus for your paintings). Claire will show you, through demonstrations and instruction how to use the drawings that you create. You will layer the paint and marks to create vital and beautiful paintings. By the end of four course you will have gained a greater understanding of the process of developing paintings from drawings.
