Take part live as it happens with our detailed online course materials and daily zoom sessions at 10:00-12:00 and 14:00-15:30. Taking inspiration from the changing season and focusing on relative tone, this live online sketch workshop looks at depicting autumn fruits, seed pods and decay.
We start with relative tone studies in pencil, moving rapidly on to explore how tone relates to texture in pen & ink and its connection with the autumn colour story.
A unique drawing course responding to what we find around us in autumn, with brilliant insights into how we perceive relative tone. Everything is presented in logical steps that are easy to follow at your own pace and also includes additional instructions for students who choose to work digitally.
