This 3.5 hour-long Live Zoom class includes instruction, demonstration, and question + answer time. The main theme of this workshop will be composition and much time will be spent on evaluating photographs to work from, doing linear and value sketches, plus a small simple painting towards the end of the workshop. Any student may use any medium, although I will be using my usual, PanPastel, Pastels and mixed media as below. This does not mean you need all the materials. You could do everything using one colour in watercolour.

We will cover Composition, Mark Making, Values, Colour Temperatures, Recession, Depth of Field and Movement.
