3 Day - Colour, light and shadow

Workshop in Oils/Acrylic— 22-24th June, 2020 

Limited to 12


This 3 day realist painting workshop is suitable for participants of all skill-levels. If you are interested in creating representational art and would like to rapidly transform your skills and increase your confidence in colour and drawing, this workshop is for you. 

Kathy will teach you how she works through her realist technique, beginning with understanding colour and its use in shaddow and light. Image selection and the use of software to enhance light and shadow. For those who can only do stick figures Kathy shares a technique on how to transfer the image accurately onto canvas, and undertaking the actual painting process — all to capture the movement, colour and light of your subjects, as well as their spirit.

You will learn techniques which will help you draw with much greater accuracy, as well as learn how to manipulate colour and light to depict any subject with vibrant energy. The 3 days will give you the opportunity to create at least two paintings (one simple image, and one more challenging), and to reinforce what you have learned. You may use your own images (any subject), or choose from some of Kathy’s, or follow along with her.

If you've ever thought about trying oils now is your chance. Students have been pleasantly surprised at the lack of smell as Kathy uses low volatilty odourless products, she will be painting in oil but you are more than welcome to use acrylic.

Cost: $300 for 3 days. Time: 9.30am-4pm daily. Workshop numbers are limited to 12, but a minimum of 5 people will be required for the workshop to go ahead. Confirmation will be given 2 weeks out from the workshop. Cancellations can be made up to 2 weeks prior. We ask for a $100 deposit on booking.

This workshop will be held at Gallery 107, 107 Drayton Street, Dalby, QLD
