Observation, Pure and Simple: workshop with John Dobbs: The Heatherley School of Fine Art

26 February 2022
PRICE: £60.00 (+ BOOKING FEE) FOR THE DAY THE HEATHERLEY SCHOOL OF FINE ART, 75 LOTS ROAD LONDON SW10 0RN

The aim for the day will be to produce a series of paintings through direct observation of what is meaningful to you and try to present this to others. No decorating or second guessing and working as simply and unselfconsciously as possible.

In the morning, we will do a series of quick paintings simplifying form and finding the big shapes and then in the afternoon, more time will be spent on a longer still life setup.
