Drawn by the Sea - The Art of Drawing and Journaling Masterclass


About the Course

This is an amazing masterclass in the art of gestural drawing and journaling. We will explore the best materials and techniques for creating beautiful landscapes and seascape sketches that are spontaneous, playful, expressive and free, using silverpoint and ancient drawing materials. You will learn how to enhance your visual vocabulary, mastering the art of clouds, sky and seashore landscapes experimenting with composition, tone, and shading.

We will become familiar with journaling using narrative; as words and pictures combine to add expression and meaning to your work, to remember memories that won't fade or be forgotten. Louisa May Alcott wrote "I want to do something splendid... Something heroic or wonderful that won't be forgotten... I think I shall write books." Research has shown that journaling can improve and strengthen the immune system and counter stress.

This workshop is set at the lovely Penally Abbey Hotel which is situated just outside Tenby, on the hillside overlooking Carmarthen Bay. The class will be held in The Courtyard.

The hotel also has a large drawing room with comfy sofas and armchairs, bar area, pretty restaurant, large gardens, a sea-facing terrace and sunroom for you to enjoy with views out to sea.

I look forward to sharing this fantastic masterclass with you!
