Painting by Ruth Kirkby
charcoal study by Ruth Kirkby
A course which examines the drawing and design inspirations, lines, marks, imagery and techniques used in the drawings and paintings of Mary Fedden. We will be examining these aspects of her work closely and then students will collect and draw from their own personalised imagery. Through a series of sketchbook exercises you will build up reference material to use in creating your own still life study.
Sessions are 'live' and will run from 2.30 (GMT) to approximately 4.30pm (GMT) on each of the course dates.
SESSION 1 ~ Introduction, setting the scene.
SESSION 2 ~ Looking at lines, marks, and imagery
SESSION 3 ~ Looking at pattern and landscape
SESSION 4 ~ Considering composition and working in tone
SESSION 5 ~ Use of colour
The overall aims are:
is to have a sketchbook full of inspirational ideas researched from Fedden's work and from your own personalised sources.
Use personal imagery to build up a full tonal drawing using comparative lines and marks.
Translate tonal drawing into colour.
Support sketchbook work through research and referencing Mary Fedden’s art.
It will begin with an introductory session with 4 further sessions and the opportunity to return later with a resolved piece
