What are we doing? This is what Stephen has to say …
“The workshop "Buildings in the landscape" is intended to explore both graphic power and subtlety in relationship between built and natural form. As some will want to produce a single complete work, I would suggest participants bring self generated photographs. Local farm buildings at distance would be the most obvious source in this regard. We are well blessed with such between me and thee.
I always react best to individual creativity so wouldn't want to be too controlling. Participants should bring a painting kit of choice. Mixed media on gesso primed stout stretched paper suits best. Mendable, in the sense that areas can be reworked through levels. For example; Gesso, acrylics, cheap soft pastels, black pressed charcoal/oil pencil.
The ambitious may attempt a 6ft x 4ft oil on canvas!! te-he. “
