What you'll do

This active and involved workshop is for those of you wanting to learn ways to paint and draw, or those who want to improve their skills! We will investigate contemporary image making in all its forms, from abstraction to mark making and colour mixing. Using my studio as a base we will spend time out in nature drawing and painting, what is produced can be works in their own right or the starting point for images made back in the studio. There will also be chances to discuss my own working process too. We will explore how to make images of natural spaces, discussing mark making, abstraction and representation. I will give an overview of painting and drawing materials and what might work for you including brushes, pencils, paper and paint mediums. The main aim is for you to enjoy working with your chosen medium and to relish making images! To work in groups can lead to breakthroughs much more quickly. You can be a novice or have some experience of image making, either way works! Taking the weather and your skill levels into account we can tailor the amount of time spent outside or in the studio. I hope you leave the session with a love of playing with images! I am flexible in terms of timings of the sessions so any questions do ask!

Where you'll be

Using my dedicated studio in the grounds of the house as a base, we will explore the private fields, lanes and paths that surround the house. It is a beautiful space with many areas of special scientific interest due to the varied species of flora and fauna to be found. Rare orchids, grasses, egret and deer are commonplace. The landscape of North Norfolk is famed for its beauty throughout the year and in all weathers!
