'Capturing what you see' 1-day plein air workshop with John Dobbs NEAC SWLA

The aim of this workshop is to work as simply and unselfconsciously as possible. To try and capture the essence of the subject so that it gives you the experience of what you see.

Meeting at Heatherleys, this workshop will focus on ‘plein air’ painting and drawing using the river / harbour area near Heatherley’s School of Art with its array of architectural styles and developments that characterise the area.
Students will produce a collection of sketches by the end of the day.
