Drawing and Painting Buildings in Mixed Media
Start date: 28th Feb 2020
Time: 09:15 - 14:15
Duration: 1 weeks
Tutor: Vicki Street
Course code: 20SP14
This course is suitable for all abilities, including beginners.
All materials are provided, but it would be helpful if you could bring 1 or 2 images of old buildings e.g. abbeys, churches, castles or other buildings with weathered surfaces, preferably in the form of paper copies. There will be some images available to use.
The aim of the course is to introduce mixed media techniques in order to create dramatic and atmospheric drawings and paintings of architectural subjects, taking inspiration from the paintings of John Piper.
We'll start by looking at the way in which John Piper used mixed media and heightened colour to create his often dramatic images. Then we'll make some small drawings trying out combinations of media including watercolour, ink, and wax resist, and finally put these techniques together to produce a finished painting.
