Pastel (reflections) at the Lake, ‘En Plein Air’ Landscape

Join us for a fabulous day learn how to create realistic and beautiful reflections using an amazing effective technique in soft pastels. Enjoy the process ‘en plein air’ in the serene setting of the lakeside at Hanwell, and come away with a stunning drawing. Taking inspiration from the beautiful setting of the countryside you will take time to relax and indulge your passion for art and learn new skills.
Your tutor, the very talented local artist Sarah Watson will guide you through the steps bit by bit, so you will come away with a fully realised A2 pastel drawing to be proud of.
Please note, in the event the weather is too bad to go outside the workshop will be held indoors. However gazebos will be placed by the lake so even if it rains you can still go outside.

About Sarah Watson BA (Hons)
Sarah Watson explores the beauty and dynamism of the natural landscape, travelling to the most stunning and diverse areas of the UK to paint. Closer to home she is particularly in thrall to the constantly changing colours and patterns in the crop fields and the endlessly changing drama in the clouds of Lincolnshire’s enormous skies. She has exhibited in one woman shows in Grantham, London and the Lake District, and been represented at the prestigious Fletcher Gate Art Gallery in Nottingham and Gallery6 in Newark. She featured on the Sky Arts Landscape Artist Of The Year in 2016, and was accepted for membership of the exclusive Lincolnshire Artists’ Society who used one of her paintings as the poster for this year’s Art In The Barn group show at Doddington Hall.
Born in Oakham, Rutland, in 1972, Sarah graduated from De Montfort University with a First Class degree in Combined Arts in 1994, specializing in Abstract Painting.
After 15 years working in the music industry, she settled in Grantham to devote her time entirely to her own art and that of her talented students who, say inspire her as much as the countryside around her.
To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 8.
(Please note: a minimum number of 4 bookings is required in order for the session to go ahead)
