"Light on the Land" 19th - 23rd July 2020

I am back to my favourite Bassenthwaite in July for a course that focuses on the changing Lake District light. I find that it always surprises, suddenly revealing dramatic contrasts and rich colours. You will work to recreate this in the unusual but compatible combination of ink and coloured pencil. Using mark-making in ink and blending, embossing and lifting out in coloured pencil, you will build up a landscape full of life and light. The two media are worked together without “colouring in” and you will be encouraged to follow your own style.
