This charcoal drawing workshop, run by local artist Phil Reynolds, returns for its third year. The course looks at how free impressionistic drawings using pencil and charcoal can be brought to life by the addition of small patches of colour from thinned acrylic paint.
Adding colour to sketches in this way helps describe the ambience of a location as opposed to a more botanical approach. This technique suits the wild beauty of Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens, which will be your outdoor studio for the day.
Includes all materials (including easels if you need one).
You will need to bring your own packed lunch and a fold up chair.
Time: 10:00 to 15:00 Cost £45
His work straddles the figurative and abstract domains and his main passion is working outside or from experience gained in the landscape.
“At the core of these works is both raw and considered mark-making. The works embody the experience and tensions faced by the painter and seek to unearth some of the otherness of being.
This is a personal journey into light, paint, and the wrestle with existence.”
He is a regular life drawer and teach private art classes. He runs weekly art classes and a range of weekend workshops and two residential courses.
“Hi Vanessa – just to say thank you for a lovely workshop yesterday. You were most helpful and welcoming and I loved your gardens,I found them so inspirational and thoroughly enjoyed my day painting. I have left you the sketch in return for two of your cards. I hope that you enjoy the study as much as I did creating it. Hopefully I will come again sometime in the future to paint.”
