Ashley Hanson 2 day workshop 25th & 26th January 2013

‘Freedom in Painting’ with the Life-Model
The life-room is a special place for artists, and links artists working today with those of the past.Working from the model is a timeless, challenging and essential discipline and the aim of this 2 day workshop is to build on observational drawing skills and follow the journey from drawing into painting. We shall explore line, form, composition and mark-making in both drawing and painting to produce our own personal interpretations of the human figure.
