Expressive Landscapes

26th - 30th June 2022

Tutor: Debbie Loane


Drawing and painting the landscape is as challenging and relevant as it has always been. In this exploratory 5-day workshop Debbie will guide you through different ways of encountering and interpreting the experience of landscape through sketching and recording and innovating with materials.

Through a series of guided creative encounters with the landscape together with time spent in the studio Debbie will encourage students to develop a personal language based on both intuition and observation.

There will be demonstrations in a variety of mixed media techniques that Debbie uses in her own practice using both conventional and less conventional media, followed by plenty of opportunity to explore ways of developing a personal language. Working initially in black and white and focussing on mark and tone and moving into working with colour, both in a limited palette and expressively outcomes can be abstract or figurative.

Open to all levels and abilities, though some experience of drawing may be a benefit.
