Possibilities of Sketches

Saturday 12th August at 10:00am Sunday 13th August at 4:00pm

We welcome back Theresa Gourlay who is offering a two-day workshop on that challenging topic of converting on-the-spot sketches into finished work. As an expert landscape (and portrait) artist, Theresa is highly versed in the art of distilling and developing finished pieces work from initial observations. Have a look at her website www.theresagourlayartist.co.uk and be very.inspired.

After a brief chat about useful materials and marks you’ll get out and start drawing probably for about ten to fifteen minutes – this is very flexible and weather dependent! Please note we will go out if there’s rain so bring waterproofs! These trips will be for very short bursts!

Once inside (all dried off!) you will have a group discussion about possible ways of developing the images, thinking about things like composition and materials. 

You will repeat this pattern over the two days, going out as a group and individually, back inside to produce images in a variety of materials, mixing materials – exploring and finding methods that suit you and what you want to achieve. You will end up with a bank of reference material, lots of experimental development work and hopefully some finished work too. And all this in August in Fife – always a visual delight!

Many materials are provided, but you can also bring a selection of sketching implements and surfaces.
