A River Workshop at Riverside Cottage,
Bransbury, Barton Stacey, Winchester SO21 3QJ
Tuesday 12th June 2018
10.00am – 5.00pm
£95/day to include lunch, coffee and tea
This workshop is appropriate for all abilities.
What could be more lovely than to sit by a river, painting and drawing? Rivers are moving and changing all the time so what could be more frustrating? Learn through experiments and new techniques how to find your own approach to capturing a river, and how to overcome these frustrations.
The beautiful chalk stream that runs through the villages of Barton Stacey and Newton Stacey is the River Dever. Its glories inspire fishermen, poets and artists alike. The Riverside Cottage studio is set amongst trees by the river and will be our base for the day’s workshop.
You will spend a morning by the river exploring different drawing techniques. To help capture an image you will be looking at Van Gogh’s mark making and experimenting with marks of your own. Working in charcoal, pencil, ink and graphite you will try to capture something of the magic of the river and its environment.
After a delicious lunch in the Riverside Cottage you will use the morning’s drawings to work towards a painting.
