Sunday workshop at Chettle - 'Constructions in Landscape'
We're looking at creating landscapes with the three distances - near, middle and far, in a dynamic construction. We'll begin (after a good chat) with working drawings...and these really can be in almost any medium. In these drawings we'll construct our landscapes being very aware of how the three elements might 'sit' together in a convincing way. In the afternoon these drawings will be translated into a more permanent painting/pastel/mixed media work.
Here are three stages through a working drawing constructed from two different magazine images. If it's lovely and warm I shall certainly send people outdoors to draw with the same aims in mind.
I'll post the results from the workshop after the day is finished.
