Independent Courses & Workshops

I am running three independent “plein air” drawing and painting weekends in 2017.  I am also running two independent Coloured Pencil masterclass days this year.  Further details are below. You can also download a flyer for these sessions by clicking the appropriate links.

This is a family-run small-holding with ducks, geese, chickens, wild boar, goats, pigs, horses and other animals set in the late spring landscape. We may also have access to a team of heavy horses across the road.

Coloured Pencil Masterclass – Saturday 3rd June 2017

  • Learn about locating your pencils in the colour space for more effective, vibrant coloured pencil pictures
  • Exploit complementary colours to add depth and form.
  • Develop effective layering and erasing techniques to achieve detail and realism
  • Develop a range of marks that will add energy to your pictures and that are right for the scale of your pictures

“In practice, my own way of working is to move from the general to the particular – an act of focusing. I aim for a broad general impression of the setting before concerning myself with specific details that “root” the picture in a particular location. Working where possible from direct observation has taught me to pay objective attention to the spatial relationships between the things within my “view”. How I “feel” about my subject will be largely expressed through techniques of composition.

I am far less concerned with self-expression than I am about accurately representing what is in front of me – as seen and interpreted through the particular lens of my experience, imagination and technical ability.”

  1. Dear Malcolm Cudmore

    Could you put me on your mailing list for future workshops / courses. I am particularly interested in drawing / painting farm animals, poultry and horses from life . Unfortunately I don’t think I can attend the 2-day July course due to other commitments. I am also an admirer of Alfred Munnings – especially his depictions of horses

    Regards
    Diane Janes

  2. Hi Diane, With apologies for the delay – as I have been neglecting my website while working away and getting ready for the local art trail. I’ll certainly add you to my mailing list. Now that I’m in my new studio, I hope to be a little more regular and consistent with sending out information! It’s a shame you can’t make the July dates. It will be the first time I’ve run a course at this venue and I may well do others there in future. Many thanks for your interest in my work. The Munnings weekend will be happening in September 12th (children) and 13th (all). I’ve already arranged for us to visit and draw at a nearby farm where they have two Suffolk Punches on the Sunday. I also plan to engage a model in costume for this day. More information will follow. Kind regards, Malcolm

  3. I like the content of your anyone can draw DVD drawing course I am a member of the SAA and will get a copy of this as I feel this will take my drawing to the next level and improve my painting
    kind regards Steve

  4. Hi Steve, For some reason or other, my website no longer informs me when anyone posts a comment. I’ve been neglecting the website over the last several months and, as a result, I have only just seen your comment! Many apologies for the delay in replying. I hope you do find the “Yes You Can Draw” DVDs useful. I genuinely believe that regular observational drawing can only benefit whatever kind of art you wish to create. This is because, in learning to draw, you are really learning to see! That means you are paying attention to things and that can never be a bad thing in respect of your art. Once again, many apologies for the delay in responding to your comment from several weeks ago. Kind regards, Malcolm.
