Ruth Gray ‘ Street Scenes Simplified’

12 Jun, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Street Scenes Simplified:

Learn many techniques including perspective, composition and how to gather information to create your own unique piece of artwork.

During the day we will create sketches and paint in Acrylic. After coffee and introductions, we will go into Ashbourne and complete some quick drawings. You will start using small thumbnail sketches, learning how to choose your subject matter and simplify the panorama.

This approach prevents you getting overwhelmed and we can use these sketches when we return to the gallery to form the basis of a completed painting. We will spend the rest of the day painting the scene in acrylic on canvas boards where Ruth will take you through each stage step by step. There will be a break for lunch and plenty of time for coffee and discussion along the way.
