A Flatford Sketchbook

Fri, February 10 @ 7:00 pm - Sun, February 12 @ 4:00 pm

Taking inspiration from this historic and beautiful setting, Carole will show you how to translate the delightful surroundings into sketches and pen & wash studies.

Using a viewfinder (which will be supplied), Carole will demonstrate how to create thumbnail sketches, draw buildings, the river, the landscape and add figures into your scenes – all the skills needed to fill a sketchbook, an essential tool for every artist. We will be using pencil, waterproof or water soluble pens with watercolours and/or water soluble pencils and working outdoors, weather permitting.

After an introduction in the studio to drawing and painting techniques, we will spend the rest of the day sketching around the Mill, or along the river toward Dedham, weather permitting. Should it be too wet or windy to be outside, we will spend time in the studio perfecting sketching techniques from suitable vantage points or working from Carole’s photos.
