Reminder: Monthly Meeting & Demonstration 12th March – Dario Falzon – Oil Painting

oil paintingReminding all that the Monthly Meeting and Demonstration with Dario Falzon is coming up tomorrow, Tuesday 12th March, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Dario will be talking through his process of taking a small gouache sketch into a larger oil painting. The scene will be a late afternoon by the river.

As a child Dario was always drawing and if he didn’t have pen and paper in hand it was an odd occurrence. This continued through much of his youth along with a strong interest in music and hip hop in particular.

In his late twenties he enrolled in a community college course studying the basics of art. Shortly thereafter he found the Julian Ashton Art School. It was around this point in time that he began to fully appreciate an interest in landscape painting and began to seek out specific artists and workshops that could develop his skills.

A connection to nature is something that is important and part of his heritage. Art is a way to express this and share with others his appreciation.

Look forward to seeing you all there.
