Drawing trees

Drawing trees: Friday 18 and Friday 25 November 2022

£95.00

Description

Tutor: John Wiltshire
Date: Friday 18 and Friday 25 November 2022
Time: 10am-1pm
Cost: £95
Location: Online

This course is designed to develop your drawing and perceptual skills through the resource of the trees at the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens. Using techniques to awaken and sharpen your observational perception, you will begin to draw trees with greater confidence, sophistication and character. Every tree can be seen as an individual but in order to draw, you require both specific and generalised information. This sounds like a contradiction but it is actually all about selection, what to include and what to generalise. How to extract this when faced with a subject as complex as a tree is a perceptual puzzle and the solution is individual to each artist. The aim of this course is to begin apply this attitude to your own drawing and to therefore assist you towards greater ability, confidence and objectivity with drawing in general.

Illustrating crab apples on architects' parchment

Illustrating crab apples on architects' parchment: Tuesday 29 November 2022

Drafting film isn’t new to the coloured pencil artist but it’s seldom used. Janie will show you how to create a beautiful illustration of green crab apples on this unusual surface. It takes coloured pencils well and is a much quicker process than working on 300g HP paper. The results are bright and translucent and every bit as vibrant as on other surfaces – maybe even brighter! The best bit – you don’t even have to draw your image on it first. Intrigued? Join the class and find out more.

A kit containing everything that you need for the course will be posted to you in advance of the course.
