“Exactitude is not truth”


This quote from Matisse will underpin the focus of this workshop. The emphasis will be on paring back the image to get to the essence of the pose. We will work from the clothed model creating images that are loose and energetic with a playful approach to exaggeration and distortion, seeking a poetic truth over an academic precision. So put aside your measuring devices, plumb lines and anatomy books and bring instead energy and imagination. Beginning with rapid drawings and moving onto quick painted studies, quality of line and expressive use of colour and materials will be explored.
