The Abstract Mixed Media Landscape Painting course is for beginners or for those who are stuck and need a new approach. This six week course will give you a gentle introduction to experimental drawing, using a sketchbook, developing a simple abstract landscape series using different materials and of course, have fun making art. I will support you with lots of demonstrations and new ideas.
Some of what we will cover over six sessions includes:
- Exploring experimental drawing techniques using different materials on paper.
