Virtual Workshop Series with Andrew Cheddie Sookrah
The Figure In The Landscape / Passion For The Figure In Urbanscapes

Monday, July 27th –  10:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m
Wednesday, July 29th – 10:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m
Friday, July 31st – 10:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m

We will explore the art of observing and collecting visual and intuitive information on your subject and presenting it as your interpretation of that person(s), showing the strong connection between them and the landscape, scene they are in.

During this course Andrew will explain a variety of methods that will help us gather the information we need and how to interpret it in drawing and painting.

We will explore basic drawing techniques, including perspective, style, technique, colour, tonal values and basic proportions of the human form, as well as elements of portraiture as we place the figure in our urbanscape. Each day will start with a demonstration followed by personal one-to-one tuition and advice on how to continue to develop your skills.
