Drawing in Nature / Workshop in Pyrenees


This is the proposal for this autumn, a drawing workshop in nature that I'll teach next month of October in the Roncal Valley, in the Navarrese Pyrenees. It will take place between days 19 and 21 in Isaba.

It is aimed at anyone who feels motivated by drawing and nature. It is recommended to have a basic knowledge of drawing, but it is not indispensable, since the essential idea the delve into this exceptional place through drawing, using nature and all that it gives us as support for, above all, enjoy and that the result of this experience is reflected in our field notebook, essential element of this workshop. Drawing and place, are the means, the end is to enjoy using our creative potential and know a little better what we see through time that through observation, we devote to what we draw.

Our field notebook, is the place in which are embodied such almost ephemeral encounters with the landscape, the water of a stream, rock, a bird, a tree,... a smell, a sense, a conversation,... are challenges and at the same time an opportunity to know and enjoy. We will arrive with a notebook blank, and we'll we go with a notebook full of experiences and sensations.

This time of year has the attractive added that the fall wears the colors very interesting and spectacular mountain shape in our field notebook.
