‘Learning from the masters’ short course with Daniel Shadbolt NEAC

Drawing from paintings helps us to understand processes and to imagine how the artist set about making the picture itself.

This short course of three afternoons will be spent drawing in the relatively quiet rooms at London's Wallace Collection.

From specific artist-focused study to an appreciation of a particular genre, we will draw from paintings to enrich our engagement. The notion of 'pictorial problems' will be approached in a manner which may then inform our own practice of drawing and painting.

About your tutor: Daniel Shadbolt has been teaching painting and drawing for fifteen years. He is a painter whose practice includes portraits among other subjects. Drawing informs what his paintings may become and have always been central to his craft.
