Service Description

If you'd like to understand how to use colour to bring your work to vibrant life this workshop is a great place to start. There is nothing more fun than playing with colour when you understand how to manipulate it to express the joy you feel about your subject. 4 Day Workshop Overview: Above all I aim to make my workshops a happy, relaxed and supportive environment enabling you to develop your own creative voice. Laughing is highly valued! Using photos taken at the Festival uploaded onto my laptop, I will go through image selection, editing and gridding with Corel Paint Shop Pro in preparation for drawing onto a canvas prior to painting. From there we will jump into the joy of colour and tone, watching our chosen image come to life on the canvas. Subjects covered in the workshop include: - image editing, cropping, gridding and drawing using Corel Paintshop Pro - please note I have no expertise with other editing programs or Apple so will be unable to assist with driving or technical issues you may encounter using programs other than Paintshop Pro (which is for Windows only, not available for Apple) -understanding the importance of value/tone, -complimentary colours and how to enhance the vibrance of a painting, - creating the impression of 3D form -when and where to use hard and soft edges Materials provided: Oil (maimeri puro) or acrylic paint (please let us know your preferred medium before the class). Palette. Easel. Rags. Canvas. Turps and jar, or water jar, fine water spray if using acrylics. You need to bring: Brushes, I do have some older brushes available to use, and some will be available for purchase. Note book. Laptop or ipad ( I don't know how to drive apple products so won't be able to help with any tech issues), you could print the reference image out but I find that it is inferior to working from a screen. Lunch. Accommodation in Surat will be very limited, particularly over the Festival Weekend, so I recommend you book accommodation early unless you are camping. If you have any queries at all please feel free to contact me by phone 0427 962 127 or email
