Outdoor Drawing and Painting

Indulge in the magic of drawing or painting outdoors in natural light. Enjoy the fresh air as you capture the local landscape. Experience why this was so popular with the French Impressionists. We will spend time in three separate locations, where you will be guided through practical tips on composition, sketching, building up form and structure and developing your own style. For the first class we will meet at Balmoral Rotunda at Balmoral Beach. In the event of wet weather classes will be held at the Mosman Art Annex: 2/696 Military Road, Mosman

About the Tutor

David Pavich is represented by Rex Livingston, the well-known Sydney art dealer. David has had 18 solo exhibitions and has been part of numerous group exhibitions in both Australia and overseas. Please visit David teaches Plein Air Landscape. The course involves drawing or painting outdoors around three various locations in the Mosman area. The locations are varied each term. David has taught a wide range of students both young and old, male and female, complete beginners to advanced students. David says that the beginners are often understandably quite nervous at their first class but astounded at times by their rapid progress during the course. This motivation is also inspired by having some of the regular students working around them. "This course is a great opportunity for students who not only love drawing or painting but to get up close to nature and discover locations they may not have visited before."

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.
