While you may have gained important experience of drawing from a plaster cast, figure or portrait model it is equally important to have an opportunity to focus on paint handling, tonal values and colour-mixing
Still life painting is a very effective way to explore and develop the fundamentals of drawing and painting.
In this workshop we explore the composition and relationship of objects, colour and proportion. ​
