In this workshop, there will be a comfortable balance between sketching and recording on location with pen and wash and working on a larger format with mixed media and collage in the studio.
The workshop times will provide ample opportunity for demonstrations, individual instruction, discussions and critique sessions.
The subject matter will range from Landscape, Still Life and Florals which will allow for experimentation and an opportunity to create individual styles filled with various forms of texture and luminous bright colours of Autumn.
