Course Description

The Strand Line is a fascinating area of discovery, where waves carry objects, plants, and creatures on to the shore. A wealth of species calls it home and we’re going to delve into what you can find there.

This 5-credit module is suitable for beginners in watercolour and drawing techniques within Natural History Illustration and for students who wish to hone their observational drawing and painting skills and create accurate paintings with fine detail and accurate colours.

The module will cover drawing with pencil and watercolour to depict the amazing range of plant and animal species that live within the Strand Line with accurate colours and techniques. There will also be colour mixing and form drawing techniques with ideas for composition. There will be presentations and discussions on the importance of the eco-system of the Strand Line and the implications on the whole of the shoreline. I will introduce you to illustrators and artists who have depicted species within the Strand Line, both contemporary and historical, to be used for inspiration and to show a variety of techniques and compositions.

This self-paced, online module will also contain various step by step demonstrations of techniques with useful hints and information on how you will create a guide to your own strand line.

Each unit will enable you to practice technique, develop your ideas, reflect upon what you have learnt and conduct research to complement your study to extend your learning. Students should aim to complete at least 50 hours of study to get the most out of this module and to fulfil the criteria for the course. All module content is accessed through our online learning portal; you need access to a computer, camera/phone camera and to be proficient in using email.

You will need access to a beach/tidal area for research purposes, as this is an ongoing research project you will need to repeatedly photograph and draw the area so, please be aware of this before joining the course.
