(This day can be stand alone, or as a follow on for anyone wanting to continue from yesterday).
This is an opportunity to do some studies from life with a group of like minded artists, and enjoy the outdoors. We’re so lucky with a wealth of subject matter in Harrogate’s Valley Gardens. Please bring your own materials, at least a sketchbook, pencil & pen. If you’re all set up, you may want to bring some form of colour, be it portable water colour or perhaps coloured pencils for ease, for example. But honestly, just a drawing pen and simple sketchbook can be enough to have a very satisfying day where we study a passage, or capture a view that attracts you. There are some cracking vistas available to us!
I will pass from student to student throughout the day, giving guidance & encouragement. We’ll move about within the top end of the gardens, keeping fairly close together, so that I can attend to all equally. Do bring lunch, a portable stool or chair is recommended, and feel free to take breaks as you feel inclined. Should we have inclement weather we will take cover somewhere convenient & perhaps work from there. Meeting point is at the picnic benches opposite the children’s play area & kiosk at 10.20. I hope to see you there!
