Outdoor Sketching Sessions: En Plein Air with Richard Towers – 17th August

Aug 17, 2024   -   Aug 17, 2024

“Richard is a self-taught artist and enthusiastic sketcher who is rarely without a sketchbook. He has been active in the urban sketcher movement, including helping to run the UK Urban Sketchers annual meeting in 2022 and running a number of workshops. He usually works in pen and watercolour but sometimes goes out with oil paints.”

North Devon Arts artists are leading Saturday morning En Plein Air sketching sessions along the River Taw at Barnstaple, following in the footsteps of Turner, one of the nation’s favourite painters.

With his grandparents reputedly born in South Molton, Turner made various trips to North Devon, famously painting the River Taw at Barnstaple, where many of these riverscape scenes can still be recognised today! Stand where Turner did and sketch what he saw!

You can bring your own preferred materials and equipment, which could include: watercolours, small plastic water container, pen and inks, pencils, charcoal, sketchbook/paper, portable easel, etc. Or limited materials will be available if required.

Suitable from beginners to expert level. Children over 14, but must be accompanied by an adult. Max: 15 people per session.

Wear suitable clothing for getting messy and for the riverside as it can get chilly.

10am – 12.30pm (meet in Museum Reception 10am)
