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 into smaller groups.
$220 for 3 days
For interstate or distant participants there is a good variety of accommodation nearby.
Lyn Mellady’s topic for August explores the influences of light, reflections, wind and wave on the East Coast shoreline. Three demonstrations and two workshops visiting the PSA art centres will see this study unfold.
Each demonstration and the following workshop will be different capturing differing energy and moods. As the stories change so do our decisions when we paint. This is a chance to work with Lyn who will share her love and knowledge of this subject that opens endless possibilities.
