"Summer Contrasts in Ink and Coloured Pencil" August 19th - 23rd 2019
I'm delighted to have been invited back to Higham for a slightly longer summer course which will allow students to do a larger piece of work. Bassenthwaite Lake always looks inspiring but we'll be concentrating on its summer aspects and the contrast between the cool water, reflections and shoreline foliage. We'll be using techniques for mark-making in ink and blending, embossing and lifting out in coloured pencil to build up a harmonious image. Higham is a wonderful location for summer, at the peaceful end of the lake close to Dubwath Water Meadows and the Lakes Distillery. Conveniently close to the Pencil Museum in Keswick for coloured pencil enthusiasts.
