DRAWING FROM EXPERIENCE

Monday, 24 January, 10am-4pm (1 hour lunchbreak)

Studio

The morning will focus on a brief analysis and discussion of a particular painting, followed by warm-up activities to consider composition and structure. We will then be drawing timed pencil transcriptions of the painting to investigate space, contour, detail, the relationship of positive and negative elements, and distilling subject and meaning to establish a more personal response. We will then work more collaboratively on those chosen areas of interest to construct a three-dimensional model of the painting, taking inspiration from the current Poussin exhibition at the National Gallery.

In the afternoon we will use this construction to translate and transform the subject to create larger scale drawings. Working with willow charcoal, erasers and brushes we will be using both additive and subtractive methods. The intention will be to explore a variety of techniques to discover motifs through process, as well as intuitive knowledge of the original source.

This will be a chance to really explore how to use your sketchbooks and experiment with different materials.

Materials will be provided.
