DAGFAS members descended on Kingholm Quay, Dumfries, on Friday May 19 in the first of the season's workshops. Landscape painter - and our new president - Davy Brown believes in getting out into the landscape you want to paint and took his class to the Quay to make a series of on-the-spot sketches.
In the studio at Gracefield, Davy explored aspects of composition and demonstrated his method of scaling-up from a working drawing to a larger version, then blocking-in broadly with paint before starting to add detail.
The next workshop is on June 30, when Clare Melinsky will be offering guidance on linocut printmaking. Details can be downloaded from the Programme page.
