During this workshop you shall look at some artists’ approach to sketching, such as Kate Downie, Henry Moore, Edgar Degas and Alberto Giacometti. We will tackle a variety of subjects and methods.

Some of the elements we will consider are: -

  • Lightness of touch

  • Conveying essential information

  • Speed of recording

  • Expressing feeling

  • The use of annotations to add context

You shall explore at a range of materials to work with including pencil, charcoal and paints on a variety of papers. We shall also look at effective uses of sketchbooks. Please feel free to bring a sketchbook along if you have one though this is not a necessity.

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.
