Understanding Colour and Light

Workshop in Acrylic — 25-26th April, 2020

This is one of Kathy’s most popular workshops. Each day begins with a talk and demonstration by Kathy on how she interprets colour to achieve her luminous, light-filled paintings. You will respond by creating your own painting, based on an image of your own choosing. (Kathy often use chooks for demonstration purposes, as they are reasonably easy to draw.)

Materials included in the cost are: paints and palette are supplied, along with the use of an easel. Included within the cost is a budget of $30 for canvases; you can pick and choose what size you would like for your masterpiece. Also use of an easel, vinyl gloves, paper towel and a plastic bag for rubbish. Brushes are not supplied, but will be available for purchase, along with other paints and extra canvases.

Cost: $240 for 2 days. Time: 9.30am-4pm daily. Workshop numbers are limited to 12, but a minimum of 7 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 50% deposit on booking.

Upon enrolment, Kathy will email you a materials list and further details about the workshop.

This workshop will be held at Kathy Ellem Fine Art, 45 Ford Street, Beechworth.

‘Bring along some images you would like to paint, remembering that keeping it simple (a subject with a simple shape, like chooks), makes creating a successful painting much easier, particularly with your first painting. Choose images with a great light source with contrasting shadows.’ 


You can see Kathy's work in person by appointment at her Beechworth art gallery at 45 Ford Street, Beechworth, Victoria, Australia.
