Session 4:  GOING BIG. 

Create a large than life still-life. This is likely to push some of you out of your comfort zone but is a really useful exercise for achieving correct proportions and freeing up your drawing skills. We will use charcoal, pastel or pencil on large size sugar paper.

Session 3:  SUNSET.

Produce either a representational or abstract picture, following a colour theory recap and a basic introduction into abstract.
