Painting and Drawing Animals from LIfe

Maisebrooke Farm, Shipmeadow

Sunday 15th September 2019

Maisebrooke is a smallholding where Jo and David Lay breed wild boar and goats. In addition, there are many other animals available as subjects – pigs, sheep, ponies, ducks, geese, chickens and others. The farm is on a sloping site with wide views over towards the Waveney Valley. There are buildings, fences, meadows and other views that can sometimes include a view of the shire horses that are kept on the farm over the road. There is also the option of going a little further down the road to a nearby meadow with direct views of the grazing meadows by the river Waveney at Geldeston and Shipmeadow.

Starting with a quick tour of the site and a short demonstration oil sketch, you will then be free to roam the farm for the rest of the day for sketching and/or painting. Malcolm will offer guidance as you work. There is ample free parking, a farm shop and café on site with access to toilets.

Bring your own equipment, materials and a packed lunch. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided through the day. Starting at 10.00 am with the demonstration, you can chose your own location for the remainder of the day and we’ll come back together at 4.00 pm. Cost per person £40.
