Spend three days living the moment that you captured in your sketchbook by recreating and composing your sketches into final paintings. Bring anything from landscape or architecture, still life or wildlife – note that it is helpful to have your own sketches from plein air painting and perhaps supporting photo reference too.
With the full rigour and all the exploratory fun of studio techniques, Mary-Anne will show you to recreate virtually the mood, energy and excitement of that moment, without allowing it to freeze. Bring out your sketches and have the luxury of time, materials and inspiration to make finished artworks.
Mary-Anne’s method is not prescriptive and will be tailored to you, your subject and your media individually.
You have time in between sessions to complete your work and submit images of your paintings for feedback on our private Facebook group or by email.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
On each day there are 2 zoom sessions from 10am to 12pm BST and 2pm to 4pm BST
Day 1: Meet Mary-Anne on Zoom for a morning and an afternoon session of art demonstration, group and one-to-one tuition time, which includes step by step advice on how to develop your sketch into a final painting,
Today includes many exercises such as using monochrome to help build up your knowledge and understanding of your subject.
There will also be time each day when you can work with the sound and camera on, while working on your own artwork.
Day 2: Meet again on Zoom to discuss our work; Mary-Anne will add critique and extra suggestions. Exercises will include tone and colour studies, composition and markmaking.
Armed with inspiration and under guidance, you continue the development of your painting, progressing to the compositional stage, finalising your composition as well as choosing colour and flowing with paint.
Mary-Anne will also have a painting developing too, to demonstrate her way of working.
Extra sundowner session at 6pm.
Day 3: Today is for the final touches. The morning is about assessing our work, how to know how whether to add more detail, or when washes or any elements need work. In the afternoon we hold a final short meeting to review and share your work and insights from the course.
The workshop will be recorded so you will be able to watch the video online afterwards.
It’s going to be a fun and highly informative creative journey!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
Mary-Anne will work in watersoluble pencil, charcoal and watercolour but you may use any medium – she often works with a simple, ‘double primary’ palette comprised of Cadmium Lemon yellow, Cadmium Yellow Golden, Cadmium Red Light, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt and Cerulean Blue. This course isn’t specifically about colour, so just use colours you are familiar with and those you already have.
