“High Summer in Ink and Coloured Pencil" 16th - 17th August 2018

The course is in the second week of Missenden's annual Summer School and will have high summer as its subject matter. This is my first teaching session at Missenden and it will be inspiring to be there when so many varied courses are taking place.
I'm looking forward to cornfields, bright harvest flowers and a bit of haze, all perfect for coloured pencil with a hint of ink. We'll be looking at composition and techniques but there will be special emphasis on light and shade. I'm hoping for mellow golden afternoons but will be bringing some inspirational material just in case. High summer and wild flowers call for softer, strongly pigmented pencils to add a final pop of colour - always the best bit.
