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.

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.
