The Geography of Paint - Pre-recorded
The Geography of Paint is a three day practical painting course led by Simon Carter.
It can be difficult to see how to use the drawings we make. Whether loose notes in a sketchbook or more complete and considered, our initial drawings often have a life and spark that is easily extinguished in the studio. This course will start with your own draw-ings made from the landscape, maybe from your garden, a local park or street, the beach or from a favourite walk and will look at different ways they can inspire a free and experi-mental approach to the painting process.
By reference to his own studio practice, Simon will help you see how the ease and ener-gy that is in drawing can be instructional in making painting. We will look at what is in the drawings, how we interpret them and ways to get things working in the studio. We will be painting from Day One, so we will move quickly from exercises that help us understand our drawings to applying paint with freedom and at scale.
