Demonstration and Workshop with Ben Ecclestone

25th April - £5 (half price with active AAG Loyalty card)

Drawing like Matisse

I would recommend that people bring:

  • several sheets of paper (good cartridge is fine),
  • charcoal or Conte' crayon,
  • soft pencil ( nothing harder than 4b, prefererably 6b)
  • and pen and ink. Pens should be dip pens and not fibre tips or biro type pens - old fountain pens can be used, or trim your own quill or reed pen. Even a piece of sharpened bamboo will do but ordinary dip pens are best; you can vary the thickness of the line with the flexible nib. Ink ought to be black and I recommend Acrylic-based ink.

We would need a model, some willing person from the group would be fine
