Using charcoal and dry pastels students will introduce and develop a series of interrelated images exploring the synthesis of landscape and figure. Emphasis will be placed on sound observational drawing as a base for re-interpreting the subject as a non-figurative image using composite shapes, texture, pattern, line and aerial perspective. Seminars on the abstraction of the figure in relation to the landscape will be placed in context through a series of discussions. There will be opportunities to view works by artists who have used such an approach and reference them in view of their own work.. It is strongly advised for students to show experience of life drawing and charcoal before embarking on this course.
