DRAWING WORKSHOP AT THE V&A, LONDON

A thoroughly enjoyable day working with artist Mark Stuart-Smith and Inchbald students at the Victoria and Albert museum. What was particularly rewarding was the fantastic teamwork and the amazing effort and results from the group.

In The Hinze Gallery students selected a sculpture and used contour line and shading to create a sense of the three-dimensional figure. 

They then took inspiration from a selection of Constable paintings to practise interpreting trees through emphasis on structure, outer contour, and texture.

The final and greatest challenge was set from one of the bridges where they learnt about vanishing points and setting up a one point perspective to draw the cast court below.
