In this ONLINE one day workshop we will explore the art of collecting visual and intuitive information on your subject and presenting it as your interpretation of that person, showing the strong connection between them and the landscape scene they are in.

During this course Andrew will explain a variety of methods that will help us gather the information we need and how to interpret it in drawing and painting.

We will explore perspective drawing, basic proportions of the individual elements comprising the human form and their relationship with the surroundings they are in, process, technique, colour, and tonal values. Andrew will present personal one-to-one tuition and advice on how to continue to develop your skills.

In this workshop we will explore:
- Capturing a physical appearance with established proportions.
- Drawing a relationship between lines in the model which are echoed in lines in our landscape.
- Rendering fabric.
- Using the principles of perspective to place buildings in a scene.
- Identifying challenges facing us as we work, finding solutions.
