"bright autumn" october 2021

landscape in ink and coloured pencil at higham hall, cumbria
tree by wastwater (sold)

I am delighted to be returning to Higham Hall from Thursday 14th - Monday 18th October for a new landscape in ink and coloured pencil course. The Lakes are probably at their most spectacular in autumn, when the warm colours of the landscape contrast with the darker rocks and tree shapes. There can be drama, or mists and mellow fruitfulness; as always, much depends on the weather!

The techniques for ink and coloured pencil can be acquired quickly and are easy to manage. You will learn to integrate the two media as you work, building up layers of rich colour and mark-making. There will be demonstrations and one-to-one help, with encouragement to work in your own style, using your chosen images or nature itself. There are techniques but no rules, so your work may surprise you with its individuality!
