Drawing with pencil and gesso

April 1, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


with Geoff Hewitt

After a very good demonstration last year, Geoff has agreed to come again to do a workshop.

He will do a short demo of about 30 mins to cover 1) choosing a subject and composition, 2) choice of support, 3) pencils, 4) painting with graphite, 5) layering, 6) the final touches.

You will need to bring pencils, sketch pads, two or three canvasses, gesso, easels if required, newspaper, rags, palettes, a stiff brush similar to a cut-down pastry brush, soft pastel fixative, and two or three images. He will supply everyone with copies of two images that he knows will work. The technique is fairly quick so he expects everyone to finish two pictures. If you are interested in anything else he covered in his demo please don’t hesitate  to suggest that as an alternative to the gesso work.

Tea, coffee and cordials will be available on the day, but please bring your own packed lunch.

For a place on the workshop email website@hornseaartsociety.co.uk.

Doors open 9.30 am.
