WHITE HORSE BOOKSHOP
Autumn Workshop Programme 2019

10th September - ESSENTIAL SKETCHING & DRAWING
Drawing is a fundamental creative skill. It is a way of seeing the world
around us, exploring form, structure, texture and tone, as well as developing
ideas and compositions for possible paintings.
Combining both studio and outdoor work, I will be covering techniques in pencil,
pen and charcoal with the emphasis on drawing from observation.
There will also be advice on creating effective tonal sketches from photographs.

4th November - RURAL BUILDINGS & LANDSCAPE
IN LINE & WASH
Lightweight and portable, line and wash is perfect for making quick sketches outdoors
for reference, or developing more resolved work back in the studio. I will cover
techniques for capturing the structure and form of rural buildings such as farms,
barns and cottages, as well as foliage, trees and skies in a free, expressive style.

20th November - SNOW SCENES IN ACRYLIC
Acrylics are a versatile and forgiving medium that can be used to create a wide range of
expressive marks and textures. On this course I will cover techniques that can also be
applied to oils. Advice on capturing an impression of the scene, the essentials of planning
and composition, including skies, winter trees, rivers, buildings, sunlight and shadows
on snow.
