In this second workshop led by artist and illustrator Molly Martin, we
will be taking our sketchbooks to the National Gallery. One of
the frequent sources of inspiration for Molly is to draw from other
artist's work in Museums. The National Gallery is an inspirational, free
resource for drawers. This workshop will start off in the National
Gallery in the morning with a short tour of Molly’s favourite rooms. We
will draw in pencil into sketchbooks looking for paintings, or even
details, which we are particularly attracted to.
In the afternoon we
will draw in the studio to develop ideas further, taking the sketches
and developing new works from them, in ink, watercolour, gouache or
pastel. This process of transforming fragmented sketches into a new
drawing is a valuable one and is supported by guidance from Molly.
