ILLUSTRATED TALKS

An open and informal lecture aimed at artists and anyone who is interested in drawing and painting the landscape.

This talk will demonstrate: what to look for, how to see in depth, observing colour and composition.

Focusing on subtle changes in a seemingly simple motif will give time to absorb and reflect on the essential without being distracted by the subjects.
