Local artist David Walsh will be taking charcoal lessons at VERVE. 


In 1984 David cycled from Hampshire to Rome where he then lived for two years, studying drawing and painting. 

Since 1993 he has exhibited widely in London, the country and Italy.

His passion is the countryside and living outdoors.

All David’s paintings are en plein air and are imbued with this feeling and love.

Land-Charcoal-Paper Course

The course is not just about looking at the landscape but really seeing and feeling it through the action of taking the charcoal for a walk across the paper. 

There is no such thing as a good or bad drawing if sincerity is involved, your drawing will be true and will be imbued with soul.

This is not a ‘how to do it’, ‘results driven’ course. This is about how it looks now and how you express that with the wonderful physicality of moving charcoal over the paper.

You will have charcoal, a roll of paper and a table.  We will work rapidly on many drawings in a free way.  This course will be about expression and liberation.
