A sketching workshop using ink and watercolour washes to create a dramatic painting

With Peter David Scott

Join award-winning book illustrator Peter David Scott for this afternoon workshop based at the historic medieval Bishops Manor in Howden. We will meet at the manor before making the short walk ( 50 yds.) to draw the ruined east end of Howden Minster, sketched by both Turner and Cotman. We will return to Bishops Manor to add colour and tone to our sketches using ink and watercolour.

You do not have to be an expert, but is advisable to have at least a little experience of watercolour painting to get the most from this course, and you will need to have your own kit to use.

Please bring your watercolours, brushes and a sketchbook, block or watercolour paper to work on. You will also need a pencil, eraser and a jam jar. If you do not have any of these items or aren’t sure what you need, please contact Peter.

Ink pens will be supplied if you need one. Water-resistant black ink will also be supplied for adding tone with a brush.

A small lightweight foldable chair is advisable.

(In the event of inclement weather we will be able to work indoors from photographs but we will visit the Minster first to get the feel of the place).
