Day by day in a Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Workshop
November 20, 2022
Hope you are having a good weekend. I'm down to my last places for the London course. I don't know when the next course in London will be but due to scheduling it may well not be until 2024.
Scotland in March is now full. Contact me if you'd like to go on the waiting list. The next course in Scotland will be in September 10-16th 2023.

The 5-day workshop is an opportunity to give yourself the gift of time as well as have teacher and group support so you can immerse yourself in this intensive drawing course and learn the perceptual skills of drawing - and much more. Discover what happens each day below.
The London course will be held in Maida Vale, W9 with excellent public transport links. The course in Scotland is residential and gives you the opportunity to relax and recharge in beautiful surroundings on the shores of Loch Goil (just over an hour from Glasgow Airport). The course is held in my studio and so the group is small and you get to have the company of little Mac Black - my yorkipoo as a bonus! You will stay in Rowan House, the five star rated B&B run by my husband and I.
"I learned that I CAN draw! Realistically, and from life! The physical evidence resides on the pages of the drawing pads in the portfolio (provided as part of the course). I honestly believed with a rock-solid certainty that it was not possible, and I was wrong. What a joy!"
5 Days to Learn to See - and Draw!Day 1 EDGES An introduction to Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and the importance of strengthening 'R-mode' ('right brain') so you can choose which mode of mind you can use depending on the task in hand. You will also learn about edges and how knowledge can get in the way of drawing. You will start using the unique Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain tools you will receive in your portfolio. You will also do your pre-instruction drawing.
Day 2 NEGATIVE SPACE The modified contour drawing of a foreshortened hand is all about edges and negative space. In the afternoon we draw a chair focusing on negative space and start learning how to draw things in proportion with the correct angles - sighting. We choose a chair as there is nowhere to hide and misperceptions in sighting will show up clearly.
Day 3 SIGHTING Often said to be the most difficult skill to learn, learning to sight angles and proportions correctly is key to depicting a 3-dimensional object/scene in two dimensions.
DAY 4 PROFILE PORTRAIT You will learn key proportions for drawing someone from life in the profile view. The profile portrait is a chance to practice all the skills you have been learning.
DAY 5 BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER After learning about the theory of light and shadow (although you will be using light and shadow all through the week), the main drawing is the self-portrait. Students get to see the progress they have made compared to their pre-instruction drawings.

The Studio at Rowan House.
"Rowan House provided a perfect venue and relaxing environment in which to learn to draw. The studio was well ventilated, clean, comfortable and bright. It was well lit and furnished appropriately, with individual desks and comfortable chairs (and a variety of cushions available, if required). The location, with its fantastic views of the loch and surrounding mountains, only enhanced what could be described as an ideal learning environment."
