Breathing Life into Paint - Through the doorway

Breathing Life into Paint - Through the doorway

Dates: March 11th - 14th 2019 (Monday - Thursday)

About this course

Exploratory drawings have direct energy and freshness. Finding ways of getting that equivalent quality into the paint can seem elusive. This course gives you four, full studio days of painting from drawings that you will bring with you. Two weeks before this course you will be emailed with some homework. Your inspiration will be what you see from standing in the front or back doorway of your house. Simon will ask you to do a series of ten minute drawings. Different approaches to the making the drawings will be suggested, to give you challenges and to make sure that you come on the first day of the course armed with exciting and inspiring studies (this is an essential part of the course, providing the subject and impetus for your paintings). Simon will show you, through demonstrations and instruction how to use the drawings that you bring. You will layer the paint and marks to create vital and beautiful paintings. By the end of four days you will have gained a greater understanding of the process of developing paintings from drawings.
