Absolute beginners 2020: Drawing the landscape - Saturday series - CANCELLED

Absolute beginners 2020

21 November 2020 - 21 November 2020 1.00pm - 4.00pm
Art Gallery Society members lounge
We will study and analyse drawings and paintings by Australian landscape artists. Working from photos and images, we will discuss some traditional strategies used to understand and construct a traditional landscape. We will learn how to see and simplify the landscape, by using viewing frames to make quick thumb nail sketches. You will choose some examples to make a series of small copies in lead and coloured pencil using a limited palette, in order to understand how other artists have applied some of these strategies and techniques to convey the landscape.

The wellbeing of our members, visitors and staff is our highest priority. We are following the comprehensive COVID-Safe Plan developed by the Art Gallery of NSW in line with NSW Health guidelines, with extensive measures in place to ensure your safety. Before your visit, we encourage you to read the latest visit information - www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/information-visitors-covid-19/know/
