EXPLORING CHARCOAL DRAWING - 3 DAY COURSE with artist: Phil Reynolds who studied Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University, graduating in 1997 and has since pursued a career as an artist. He has been exhibiting his work in contemporary galleries throughout the North of England as well as London and Bristol affordable art fairs. Phil's work explores the ground between abstraction and figuration where forms emerge from a fluid use of acrylic paint. His work is both instinctive and keenly observed bringing together raw marks with more mediated responses.
During this workshop you shall: explore the nature and history of the media, explore the range of possibilities for charcoal through practical application, look at specific techniques and how to apply them e.g. how to describe edges of objects, how to describe form etc; assemble still life subjects and use charcoal creatively to describe what you see. During each of the 3 weeks we shall push a different usage and examine what has been learned from the mornings through a reflective chat at the end of each session.
