Buildings in the Landscape; course

24th February to 31st March

Six Tuesdays 11.30am to 3.00pm
This course will be delivered online by Jo Hall for
Norden Farm Centre for the Arts

Structures in the landscape often owe their existence to the land they are built on, whether to protect the terrain, to farm it or simply occupy it.  In the same way it is good to consider the contours of the landscape before embarking on a painting inspired by man-made structures.  Over six weeks we will draw and paint some of the following; a bridge, viaduct, stone wall or cairn, a derelict or deserted house, a castle, mine buildings, or fishing hut or barn.  This course will include drawing, mark making and painting.

Suitable materials would be any drawing media (ink, charcoal, graphite) and for painting, watercolour or pastel.  For texture have some candle wax or a couple of wax crayons or oil pastels to hand for use as a resist with wet media.
