A Slow Journey in Still Life with Fast Results

A two-day still life art class with popular tutor Charlotte Thodey

The emphasis of this course will be on close-up observation of nature and light. You will cover the basics of drawing and arranging objects on the canvas setting out the painting according to tonal values and careful layering of colour to capture the light that reveals the fleshy essence of the fruit.

Includes lunches on the Foundation & Friends terrace
