Capturing the Moment: Rapid Sketching Techniques with Tim Fisher
Mon June 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm| £65.00
Introducing colour, participants will build upon the learning points of the previous day, looking at recording the scene in ink and wash, using either watercolour or coloured pencil to complete the scene. This second day is for those who wish to get a better grasp of the watercolour process though loose and lively sketching. Artists do not need to have attended the workshop the previous day.
Tim has had many years experience working this way and is generous in sharing his skills and knowledge with students of all abilities who attend.
The emphasis is to travel light, with the minimal number of materials needed to capture the subject rapidly and effectively.
This day long course is ideal for those who wish to improve their drawing skills through new ways of working and thinking about the sketching process.
Returning after sell-out workshops at the last festival, Tim Fisher is a leading artist, author and popular art tutor.
Since the launch of his career Tim has been a finalist in the Daily Mail “Not the Turner Prize” competition and has won numerous other art awards.
Tim writes regularly for the Leisure Painter and has recently become one of the Editorial Consultants for the magazine. As an author, he has completed three art books for the publisher Search Press.
Participants can opt to book just this day long workshop, day 1 (the previous day) or both.
This workshop starts and finishes at the Ticket Office next to the village green, but will be sited in various locations around the village throughout the day.

A simple solution to working outdoors with the minimum of equipment is to have a small lightweight camera tripod plus drawing board with tripod mounting bracket fitted to board(Ken Bromley art supplies) and a small ply shelf cut to fit between tripod legs. If you are unfamiliar with working outside, its a good idea to have a practice with your chosen set up before the day arrives
