Berwick Educational Association Workshops: The Figure in the Landscape: drawing and Painting in Watercolour or Gouache

Berwick Educational Association are hosting a series of six practical art workshops inspired by the works of women artists in Berwick Visual Arts Spirited exhibition on display at the Granary Gallery, giving amateur and professional artists the opportunity to try out some of the techniques used by artists in the Spirited exhibition. 

Workshop 4 - The Figure in the Landscape: drawing and Painting in Watercolour or Gouache
Working outside (weather permitting) on the Berwick Quays we will combine seascape, architecture and a clothed figure into one stunning painting. The artwork within the exhibition will guide us on how to construct a composition that links all three elements using a limited colour palette and colour washes. There will be a draped model.

Bring watercolour paper, pencils, paint and paper. In case of bad weather bring landscape sketches or photographs.

2. Propaganda of Print: a reductive lino printing workshop - 21 June
