Walking in the Landscape – Watercolour, Drawing and Egg Tempera
Wednesday 20th – Thursday 21st June 2018
Course fee £240 including a light lunch, tea and coffee
A two-day course involving exploration of the rural landscape around Stockbridge and the surrounding countryside, using drawing as a prime means of recording, along with photography and watercolour. There will be an opportunity to develop the work using raw pigment and egg on paper and board. Imaginative development of colour and composition will be encouraged. Materials will be provided but you are also encouraged to bring your own brushes, pens, sketch pads and any other personal materials that you are used to working with.
The course will be led by Andrew Lansley. His work encompasses a broad range of media, including drawing, watercolour egg tempera, print and photography.
On his approach to landscape, Andrew says ‘Drawing is fundamental to my exploration, which is about defining and distilling the visual essence of things. Drawing connects me to my surroundings.’
Andrew’s work has been exhibited at the Royal West of England Academy, Mall Galleries and the Royal and Royal Academy. He has also just been appointed by the Friends of the Scott Polar Research Institute as their Artist in Residence in Antarctica for the 2019 season.”
