Book by 1st Dec to get your early bird discount for March 16-20th 2020
November 27, 2019
I'm finalizing details for a 5-day workshop in Scotland and hoping to run it early September 2020 in Lochgoilhead which is about 1hr 20 mins from Glasgow international airport. Loch Goil is part of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and is a fantastic area for walking, golf, fishing and boating. I will be opening registration shortly.
And for those of you who have already worked with me - a new 2-day Follow-on course for 'graduates' is coming next year - find out more below.
Dates for other 2020 5-day workshops are below and I'm hoping to add another London course in May 2020. If you are interested in March there is only place left and the early bird discount expires this weekend!
In each 5-day workshop you will get:
2020 Workshop DatesNon-residential courses in London and the residential in north Wales
Book early and save £50 see individual courses for details.
'Before' and 'after' student drawings
*New* Follow-on Course for AlumniI'm delighted to announce that in 2020 I will be launching a 2-day follow-on course for those of you who have completed the 5-day workshop. I know this is something that people have been asking for!
I have been working with Dr Edwards and Master Instructor Brian Bomeisler over the last few months refining the content and we hope that it will help you consolidate your drawing skills and take them to another level. If you haven't been drawing and things are feeling a bit rusty this would be a great way to get back into it.
This workshop is open to those of you who have completed the 5-day workshop and you will need your portfolio materials. The first one will most likely be in London but I also hope to run them in Scotland.
Dates and location are still to be confirmed but do reply to this email if you would like to register interest (without any commitment).
Finding the time to drawThis month I wanted to write about something that is very topical for me right now in all areas of my life and I think it’s a lesson I’m finally learning so I wanted to share it with you.
There are many times I put off doing something because I think it’s too big a job – whether it is cleaning the refrigerator (procrastinator’s estimate: a whole afternoon, actual time less than 30 minutes), planting a window box herb garden (procrastinator’s estimate: a whole day, actual time a couple of hours including trip to garden centre), completing a portrait (procrastinator’s estimate: several hours, actual time less than 60 minutes).
One of the commonest reasons I hear for not drawing is that ‘I don’t have time’. My challenge to you this month is to find the wasted moments in your daily life when you could find time to draw. Here are some tips that I hope might help.
I find the more I draw and paint, the more I want to do it but sometimes I have to give myself a shove to start the ball rolling, then I just do it, regardless of whether I am in the mood or not.
