Physical in studio classes on Tuesdays are being replaced this term with Zoom lessons along with our normal Zoom lessons on a Wednesday.



Term 4
Water Term 4  - As you choose
As the year is winding towards summer I have looked back at our journey with water so far.
This term, once again is a stand alone term, that is it is not linked to previous terms. Each painting has a learning focus and we concentrate on them individually.    
As we plan to make this even more interactive I will be offering a change in how we work.
As usual I will have a full demonstration set of videos available, on the day and available in a private website during the week.
-Here is where we will differ.
The enrolled students have shown their preference for subjects this term from images I have already sent. Each has a different water focus to consider and I will be working from their previous input.
I will start with my 1st preference for the 1st lesson and then explain how your personal choice will be reflected in our term's work.
***
I will illustrate the method and the reason or steps involved, for each painting and I will be available more in the lesson to let you work on your paintings, have time for any issues that you encounter and/or individual assessment along the way.  

Over to you.

    Artable on the Gold Coast

    $395
    book on line
    Pastel art workshop on the Gold Coast with Lyn Mellady. Lyn will demonstrate and explain how to paint large and small waves breaking on the shore and variation in skylight. Enjoy creating the colours and clarity of the waves and see how the direction of sunlight creates sparkle and shadow in the foam as well as the water. As you paint, you will understand the energy that shapes the wave and see how the direction and shape of strokes help with the movement of the water. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, enjoy and explore the possibilities and variations that nature provides.

    Annual Pre-Summer 3 day workshop
    Lyn Mellady(pastel)
    Julie Goldspink (watercolour)


        

    Mornington Peninsula Annual Pre-Summer School
    Fri, Sat, Sun 12-14 Nov 2021
    3 day workshop
    plein air
    and studio located at 77A Barkly St Mornington

    Course description
    Two art tutors

    Level:-  For artists with some degree of proficiency in their medium. (pastel/acrylic/watercolour)
    Why venture out into the real world? Is it a venture or adventure?
    There are many popular art tours happening all over the world offering to enrich the travel and share the experience of painting together.   
    This workshop is for artists who are uncomfortable with the concept of painting on site.
    They may feel exposed, inadequate or simply frustrated with their results.  Or maybe they just want to feel prepared.
    This is time to learn how to choose, set up and capture the scene.
    Lyn will demonstrate. We will paint on site in the morning then bring the work back to the studio each day
    to assess results and decide what the next step might be and possibilities of improving.
    It will aim to sharpen your decisions in all stages and allow you to relax with the process.
    The afternoons will spring from the morning’s painting.— what is the next step?   We will all possibly have a different ‘next step’.
    Lyn Mellady and Julie Goldspink will take this course and split to a max no 5 people in a group
    $220 for 3 days
    For interstate or distant participants there is a good variety of accommodation nearby.



    With fingers crossed, we are hoping this will go ahead.
