Seeds, Shells, Stones and Skulls

Seeds, Shells, Stones and Skulls

Saturday 14th April,

At Ramshill, East Winterslow

10.00am – 1.00pm


Suitable for all

I like to look to  the natural environment as a source for a still life. NO BLING, no  jugs, no vase of flowers, but all of life in a Still Life.


There will be a number of different seeds and seed heads, exotic, large and small shells, stones collected locally and from beaches far and wide, and a selection of skulls.fullsizeoutput_314

The aim is to examine the variety of texture, tone, shape and subtle colour in these natural objects. The morning will start with drawings using charcoal, pencil and ink.

The aim is to get interest and excitement into a subject that has been seen before…new angles, play with different media, and explore composition.
