Reminder: Glenda Carter Workshop 6th May

Reminder: We have our Glenda Carter Workshop coming up on Sunday 6th May and we have some spaces left!

Full Day Workshop with Glenda Carter is on Sunday 6th of May: Contemporary mixed media The ‘Implied’ Landscape.

Glenda’s work relates to landscape and an emotional response to the atmosphere and the initial impact on the senses – to evoke a sense of place and imagery influenced by the climatic conditions. While much of her work is painted in rich sensuous colour and line, her city scapes are often worked in black and white, with strong gestural markmaking, as if lit by a flash of lightning in the night sky.

Date: Sunday 6th May
Time: 10am to 4pm
Venue: Yarramundi Community Centre, 54 Thornbill Way, Nepean Park Estate (off Springwood Rd)

Full Day Workshop with Hiren Patel – “Urban Landscapes in Oils” 2nd July 2017

We had a great demo from Hiren Patel at our June Monthly Meeting.

We are having a Full Day Workshop with Hiren focusing on ‘Urban Landscapes in Oils’ on the 2nd of July.

Hiren paints urban landscapes which portrays the mood, atmosphere and activity of the scene. He chose to paint with oils for their versatility. His painting methods are based on the 19th century realists and impressionists. He employs the ‘Alla Prima’ technique. Good design, composition and dramatic light are very important to his work.

Hiren will guide students through the process of loose drawing and applying Alla Prima technique to an urban landscape painting on the day.
