10 – 14 October 2019

About the course

Lightweight and portable, pen and wash is perfect for making quick sketches outdoors for reference, or developing more resolved work back in the studio. 

Taking the surrounding landscape as our inspiration, Paul will cover techniques for capturing the key elements of foliage, trees, skies, water, the farmhouse and local village.

A materials list will be provided.

The holiday runs from 4pm Thursday evening to 10am Monday morning (3-day course with 4 nights’ accommodation).
