Some New Sketchers

On a rather wet and windy Friday morning, a few brave souls ventured over to Harakopio to try their hand at Drawing & Painting (Sketchbook Style)….

After producing a couple of drawings as a record of their  ’pre-instruction’ skill level, they were introduced to the joys of ‘wrong-handed-drawing’! Then, following a brief demonstration, they started drawing in earnest…

Today, our subject matter was a pile of fresh and juicy mandarins I’d selected specially for the purpose….

Or, to be more precise, a solo mandarin – that’s quite enough to start with.

By now they were ready for a coffee break, but no lounging in a sunny garden for these guys. It was pouring, so we had a quick break in the studio; munched a few biscuits for energy…. and got right back to work…

After a second demo, painting began on the mandarins….

Here are the fruits of their labours – gracing their brand new sketchbooks at the end of the first morning of the course….watch this space to see their ‘homework’ and next week’s work.

  1. Brings it all back…. well done everyone. I’m afraid my homework has got very behind……… in fact it’s virtually non-existent but will be catching up soon. Enjoy
