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

Reminder: We have our meeting and ‘Painting a Portrait in Watercolour’ demo with Dee Jackson coming up on 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.

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)
Cost: $50 for members or $55 for non members
