This workshop will explore the transition of initial sketches into a painting and examine various approaches to landscape and the importance of drawing as an entry point towards developing ideas. The workshop will be held in an air conditioned studio. You will prepare a number of small drawings in which you will be encouraged to be playful and adventurous on your mark making. These drawings will respond to and interpret your reference material , photographs and build ideas using a range of media to make initial explorations. The afternoon will be spent developing a painting in the medium of your choice based on your morning work.

We will look at how a number of photographs can influence your painting, rather thamn just copying a photograph. We will discuss examples of landscapes by a range of artists.
