Autumn begins and Nature slows. As a celebratory finale the colours and majestic shapes of Autumn trees illuminate the landscape; often framed with a slate grey or sharp, clear, pale blue sky. Ornate tapestries of reds, oranges, yellows, browns, greens and purples appear in the canopies that reach skyward and spread out like hanging skirts. This 5 day course is all about capturing and exploring these qualities in drawing and painting.

The first 2 days of this course will take place at Nymans Gardens in Handcross, just 15 minutes from the Partridge Green studio. We will meet there and Emily and Katie will demonstrate and guide to help students make rich, evocative studies. This work on location will be about capturing the colour, structure and developing a language of marks and gestures that can be used back in the studio to make paintings from.

For the final 3 days we are in the studio. Emily and Katie use their combined extensive knowledge and shared love of teaching to guide students through the stages of unpacking the information in the studies and creating a collection of paintings. They will do demonstrations to inspire and give ideas. One to one tutorials will also help each student develop their own voice and a personal body of work that celebrates their experience of being in the Autumn landscape.
