Cherry Hood

Painting Faces in Watercolour

The methods used are not conventional or traditional watercolour techniques. 

Working from photos Hood demonstrates how she makes her large scale watercolour paintings and will assist each participant in preparing colours, drawing the image and applying the paint.  Students who wish to venture into large scale works will be encouraged to pour watery paint onto their paper. You will proceed on with a second painting during the drying process. Large brushes are preferable to achieve quick, loose flowing marks while smaller brushes are used for detailing the facial features.

Hood gives demonstrations in drawing and painting the eyes, nose, mouth etc to help students understand and achieve the required proportions when painting portraits and transforming a photograph into a recognisable haunting image.

Participants from all levels of experience may expect to produce at least two good paintings in the style of Cherry Hood - ie a large human face by the end of the second day. 

Cherry is represented by Tim Olsen Gallery, Sydney, Arc One, Melbourne, Heiser Gallery, Brisbane, Paul Greenaway, Adelaide and Turner Gallery, Perth. Hood attained a Master of Visual Art at the Sydney College of Arts in 2000. Her thesis investigated gender politics in art and cultural mores and taboos. She is represented in major Australian institutional and gallery collections; and has won the Arhcibald Prize in 2002.

Participants will be forwarded a list of requirements for the workshop.

Wendy Sharpe

A Day In Wendy's Studio

An exclusive 'one off' to work in the studio of Wendy Sharpe for the day. Wendy will conduct compositional and drawing exercises with the group and will throughout the day demonstrate how she creates her provocative and sensuous images of the human form.  Sharpe has developed a distinctive gestural style grounded in an innate ability to draw. She confronts the complexities of human relationships and universal themes of love. Often working directly from life, her paintings possess a spontaneity and directness that invites viewers to engage with the work on an emotional level.

Address details will be provided with booking.

A Day In Wendy's Studio


Tim Allen

Landscape Fast and Loose

An expressive and bold approach to the landscape tradition. Students will be developing skills to respond artistically to the landscape in an immediate, powerful and spontaneous way.

Tim will demonstrate both alla prima techniques in oil and layering techniques in mixed media. Students can choose to work with one or both approaches over the two days. The common threads will include mark making, ways of seeing and the surprising amount of planning, technique and thinking that goes into bold and expressive paintings.

Students will come away with a wide range of skills to continue in their own practice. They will have an understanding of techniques with mixed media, including ink, watercolour and pastel and how these can be used to capture the essence of the landscape. They will have an understanding of oil painting techniques, particularly alla prima techniques, as they relate to landscape.

It is expected during the workshop that students will produce a range of drawings and studies to develop one or two larger finished, resolved artworks in the studio on the second day.

Tim will conduct regular demonstrations of his own techniques and processes during the workshop. His teaching style is enthusiastic and engaged with a focus on individual tuition and getting the best out of every student regardless of their experience.

DEPOSIT IS NOT REFUNDABLE NOR TRANSFERABLE.
