Speed Landscape Drawing and Painting

Speed Landscape Drawing and Painting

Saturday 10 August
Ensbury Avenue, Bournemouth - 10am - 2 Hours
Anna Herpels
The focus of this two-hour structured session is "speed" and "form", i.e. capturing the essence of a subject. You will be guided to complete some "warm-up" colour and drawing exercises and prepared for doing ink and watercolour-based painting in the session. You will learn how to quickly sketch and capture multiple subjects in the garden with ink and wash technique. You will be advised to keep things rather loose and time your drawing/painting.
You will have a chance to meet and greet like-minded people, choose your own subjects in the garden and be guided to complete the exercises, and artwork and have some takeaway homework with the learned technique. All levels and experiences are welcome.

Title or Location: Sunset at Boukari Harbour, Corfu
I started painting 6 years ago after attending a paint night at a local bar (just for fun) in Vancouver, Canada, where I had been living. I was addicted! Youtube videos have been a great way to learn and grow. The journey has been frustrating at times but it has also become my stress relieving activity.I visited Corfu at the beginning of June and loved the sunsets at this location in the South East of the Island. When I look at skies, clouds , water etc I am always imagining how to paint them

Title or Location: Staithes
I was very good at art when i was at school. I never really took this up in later life until i was married and had a bolt-hole, or den, of my own. So i bought some water colour books to learn from. I feel i was taught badly at school. For example, rules such as never to include figures in your art work, or never use a ruler. So in my 40's I decided to break some of these rules and start painting again. This picture of Staithes was taken from a book by David Bellamy I think, and was one of

My life completely changed in 2017 and I became pretty much housebound , Luna has been my constant companion and the greatest source of healing for me.

I painted this Lion portrait as a miniature of just 65mm. It was taken from an photo by an African Safari photographer friend of mine that allowed me to use it as my reference. I have produced a range of miniatures this size from the animals in the Luangwa National Park and put them into print to sell. All the profits go to the Conservation South Luangwa charity in Zambia.

Title or Location: Fields and Skies Blewbury Oxfordshire
A friend asked me to create a painting for her to give to her sister as wedding gift. She sent me some some ideas of colour pallettes she liked and I used a photo I had taken of the landscape in Oxfordshire as inspiration. I painted the whole canvas bright pink first and let it dry and then painted on top.

This is a gouache painting on watercolour paper and measures 6x4ins. Our theme in art class was Moroccan markets and this particular scene offered colour, architecture and sunshine without the heaving masses. I shall attempt a crowded scene next time.

Title or Location: And so, my love
I have had some luck with abstracts in the past, but got away from them when pet commissions and nature-oriented subjects filled my days. Recently, however, I found myself looking for something different, and I was inspired to get back to this very different way of painting. I'm having fun again! This is one of a series that is coming together, interpreting the emotions of love and longing. I hope you enjoy it, and will check out my web site, and perhaps join my mailing list!

Title or Location: Heartache
This is the third of my abstracts in what I'm hoping will be a series called "A Woman's Life". I'm trying to express emotions through the composition, colors and the attitude of the subject. This is a very challenging project but I'm seriously enjoying it and I hope that other people will enjoy viewing what I come up with.
