I shall be returning to Bassenthwaite in June and hoping for some mellow summer sunlight. This course combines the impact of ink with the softness and subtlety of coloured pencil, perfect for the lakeside in summer. Practise mark-making in ink and blending, embossing and lifting out in coloured pencil. Integrate both media to build a harmonious image using cool reflections, soft light and contrasting foliage shapes. This is slow but enjoyable art, offering plenty of scope for individuality and creativity on a small scale. Enjoy the relaxing process and the beautiful surroundings.

The course runs from Thursday 22 June 6.00pm - Sunday 25 June 12.30pm 2023
