Painting in the Park: sketching wildfowl in St James Park with Robert Greenhalf and Peter Partington

Saturday 21st October 2017 11.00 am til 4.00 pm

Clip0002This workshop is all about drawing birds from life, using as models the collection of tame wildfowl in nearby St. James’s Park. We will have the use of the Learning Centre at the Mall Galleries where we will start the day at 11 am with a brief introduction from your tutors Peter Partington and Robert Greenhalf before heading across the road to the park where you will be free to find your own wildfowl subjects to draw. Peter and Robert will be on hand to advise and instruct throughout the day.
There is a convenient cafe where refreshments and shelter in the event of rain can be had.
At 3.30 pm  we will head back to the Mall Galleries Learning Centre for a short debrief before finishing at 4 pm.
There will be ample opportunity to view and gain inspiration from the SWLA Exhibition in the Gallery. The “Out of the Frame” room should be particularly relevant as it is all sketches and paintings made in the field.
Cost £65 (Friends £55)
