Monthly Meeting 12th June – Dee Jackson Painting a Portrait in Watercolour

We are very happy to have Dee Jackson with us to demonstrate ‘Painting a Portrait in Watercolour’ at our next monthly meeting for Tuesday 12th June, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Watercolour is Dee’s great love; it is the fluid spontaneity that has the attraction. Watercolour, as a medium, lends itself to the softness and curves of the human form. It allows the artist great freedom.

“When I create a portrait, I am aware of the almost seamless link we have with our past or future, our hopes, joys or sorrows. Portraiture by its very nature is an intimate experience. Preoccupied as we often are, perhaps from very different backgrounds, there is always a human connection.

Although each portrait essentially begins the same way – with discussion, planning, sketching, watercolour washes and glazes – ultimately the creation of each portrait is an individual experience.”

Dee’s portraits have been commissioned throughout Australia as well as in New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, United Kingdom, USA and Vietnam.

Monthly Demonstration Meeting 11th April – Sally Ryan – Portrait in Oils

sally-ryan-ted-baillieu-portrait-at-the-parliament-victoriaWe are pleased to welcome Sally Ryan to our monthly meeting for Tuesday, 11th April, 7:30 pm at the Stans Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Sally will demonstrate ‘Portrait in Oils’.

Inspired by the work of the Flemish masters (such as Vermeer, Rembrandt and Dou), her style is best described as contemporary realism.

Before portraiture became her primary focus, Sally had worked for a number of years in both the graphic and ceramic arts. These practices laid the foundation for the patterning and detail her art is noted for today. The human subject, though, remained a point of interest throughout her career and after a few years of intensive study at the Julian Ashton Art School (including a Scholarship in 2010), portraiture and figurative art had become her passion.

Sally now works in oils, graphite and charcoal and has been recognised in competitions across Australia and internationally.

As a classically trained realist artist her approach to painting is based on traditional oil techniques and processes. Usually her portraits take months to complete so in a short demonstration she will provide an insight into her process – from preparatory drawing through to oil sketch, including how she arranges her palette.
