Malaga 2016 – Light and Shade/Luz y Sombra

Malaga in August is hot! Light and Shade was a great topic to explore in Luis’s hometown. What a treat! The workshop explored line quality with Miguel Herranz, building’s and people’s rhythms with Luis Ruiz and watercolour painting with Isabel Carmona.  Three non stop days in very magical city, with squares, cathedral, plenty of people and cafes, market, museums and monuments, spectacular trees, and great food. We were warmly welcomed by the Fundacion Pablo Picasso Casa Natal and were able to use their teaching room to house our “cool” sessions and exhibition wall. From there we set off on the final day to our sketch meet with the Malaga Urban Sketchers along the Paseo del Parque and the harbour.

What the participants said:

 “[I liked best] being in a fascinating city, learning new techniques with a group of great people led by inspiring tutors”

” It delivered what it promised. I learned a lot and my boundaries were pushed. I did things I was previously nervous about (i.e. drawing building, watercolours). I enjoyed spending 10 hours per day drawing/painting, very inspiring.”

“[I liked best] the small groups, personal attention during workshops”
