A materials list is available at the beginning of the course and additional information on materials is included throughout the course. But we start with the most simple of materials - pencil and paper! So if you have that, you are ready to begin!
Our inside creative spaces are often our sanctuary whether you have a dining table, shed, or studio. It is a safe, comforting place to while away the hours, indoors, working on our art. The thought of venturing out of that environment to seek inspiration can, for some artists, feel a little daunting.
Where to go? What to sketch? What materials to take? What practical things do I need to think about? What if people look at me and judge what I am doing? What about the weather? How do I even begin? How to I choose what to draw?
In Gathering the Landscape, my aim is to give you a place to start, ways to find yourself and your creativity whilst outdoors and the desire to make this an ongoing part of your creative practice.
There is a whole world out there to inspire our creativity and ‘draw’ from. No matter where you live, what scenery surrounds you or what landscapes you can visit, there is a wealth of opportunity for expressing something about the world in which we live.
