Life Drawing and Painting for all abilities

Life Drawing and Painting

Drawing and painting the figure from life is centuries old. The fulfilment of grasping the measurement system for accurate drawing is a life long skill artists learn that enables them to draw anything outside of the life room.

This is aimed at anyone, beginner or improver who truly wants to draw and draw well.

Pencils, pastel, charcoal or paint - the choice is endless or a combination of all media leading to exciting mixed media.

There is no pressure here, enjoyment is key to success.

About the Tutor

I am a tutor of many years standing, having taught Adults for the County, an Artist in Printmaking and Painting, with a teaching qualification and a Degree in Fine Arts. I have exhibited locally and nationally.

My inspiration is the landscapes of Yorkshire, The Lake District, Scotland, wildlife, and my Dog, I spent time outdoors painting and sketching some times in remote landscapes.
