This landscape course focuses on drawing on location, teaching participants to quickly capture the atmosphere and mood of a landscape like an artist and transition from sketching at home to sketching outdoors. In just two and a half hours of instruction, students will learn to blend on-location drawing demonstrations with drawing theory and studio-based tutorials. You will also receive guidance on practical materials for outdoor drawing.
Through step-by-step tutorials, students will master techniques for capturing, composing, and balancing scenes, before refining their ideas in the studio, each student will produce a finished painting for the day.
Bert Evans was born in Port Talbot in 1948. He specialised in painting at Newport collage of Art 67-72 where he found the help and advice by such painters as Jack Crabtree and Selwyn Jones so important in his development.
He is primarily a painter of light, which he says makes the most mundane scenes and subjects interesting. His loose approach complemented by a good understanding of colour always attracts a positive reaction from observers. He is a firm believer in only painting from situations he has witnessed firsthand. ”How else can I be sincere in my work?” he asks.
Although he has enjoyed experimenting in watercolour, it is his oil paintings that have earned him his reputation and he can count Hollywood actor Michael Sheen to be a big fan of his work, having purchased several Bert Evans Originals.
