Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 September, 10am - 4pm
By applying ink to glass, and printing onto paper, Degas was able to use the accidental marks of rag and brush to evoke the French landscape. Monotype is an exciting and experimental medium, somewhere between painting and printmaking. Participants will spend the first day sketching outside, and the following day learning how to translate their images into monotype prints, in both monochrome and a limited palette, before embellishing with pastel.
Please bring a sketchbook, pencils and charcoal to the first day of offsite drawing, and be sure to wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing. Participants will meet the tutor Meg Buick at the RWA before heading off to Brandon Hill for landscape drawing. Day two will take place in the RWA Drawing School studio. On the second day all materials will be provided, but please bring an apron or wear clothes suitable for an art studio. You may wish to bring a plastic bag in which to take wet work home.
