Work with artist Steven Buckler to explore the difference between recording a landscape and responding to it.
Steven will guide you through his process of using coloured inks to create backgrounds, on to which he adds details observed from the landscape using a range of media.
Explore recording shapes using negative and positive space. Learn about creating composition by cropping your images in order to leave the session with 3 paintings.

Meet Your Tutors
My work is about more than the landscape, it’s about the sense of being in it. The atmosphere, the light and the colour. For me it is about drawing and painting these bits of our landscape that are normally edited out of our perception and experience.
