Week 1 Monday 1st – Friday 5th August
‘Painting from nature is not copying the object, it is realising one’s sensations.’ Paul Cezanne
The green spaces in York will be our inspiration for this week. Over this last year we have realised even more the healing power of being around nature, our intimate connection to it for our general wellbeing. Starting from drawing on location for the first two days, you will gather a wealth of visual research in a variety of materials. This work will be developed back in the studio where demonstrations in colour-mixing of paint, composition and tips on the practical use of materials will be given. You will see your work progress from the initial sketch to the resolved painting.
Slide lectures of relevant artists will be given throughout.
