In this 7 week course we explore the art of painting the environment combining plein air (out door) and studio-based practice. Located in a unique industrial area, Scratch provides easy access to explore and paint this striking environment. The course is a mix of nocturnal sketching & research, and if the weather is bad we explore interior space.

Students learn how to collect visual material on location through quick drawing & painted tonal studies, supported by photos to use later in the studio as reference to further develop visual ideas ready for a painting.

The course will impart a deeper understanding of how to arrange elements through the application of tonal Notan, which helps identify potential subjects for composition. It’s suited for all levels, and is integrated with an in depth analyses of colour theory and its practical application.
