With an array of different shells in all shapes, sizes, colours and textures, there are many challenges to overcome when drawing and painting these inspiring subjects.
Structured drawing approaches will help you to overcome these challenges, especially when portraying spirals and other more complex shapes. The twisting, varied form and colour of seaweeds will compliment the seashells and other marine subjects.
Once accurate line drawings are created there will be the opportunity to experience and practice a variety of colour-mixing and watercolour painting techniques.
Iridescence on the inside of shells is formed of many colours applied in thin delicate layers. Some shells and sea urchin tests have colours that benefit from being created using subtle creamy opaque colour tinted with others. Then there are the colours of seaweeds such as the dark earthy colour of bladder wrack, the fresh greens of sea lettuce and the golden browns of kelp.
Sarah will be bringing a range of shells, urchin tests, sand dollars and other marine subjects, but please do bring along any of your own. Seaweeds will be collected just before the course, so species and colours will be dependant on what is available.
During this course there is the option of creating a small painting of 2-3 subjects or a study page of several more.
