Balmoral and Beyond with Sandra Blackburne - Holiday Workshop

Balmoral and Beyond with Sandra Blackburne - Holiday Workshop

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This two-day workshop will guide you on how to progress from initial drawings to a finished painting. Students will learn how to focus on composition, structure, looseness and flow.

Day 1: The morning will be spent at Balmoral Beach, Mosman. Participants will start with several quick charcoal sketches, giving different projections into the landscape. The importance of drawing will be discussed. We will then proceed to work in watercolour, gouache or acrylic whichever you have. These images will form the basis of the studio work to follow. After lunch, we will reconvene at the Workshop Arts Centre studio to set up and evaluate the morning’s work. We will be looking at perspective, composition and structure and choosing the final painting content.

Day 2: A full day of working on canvas in acrylic or oils, whichever you usually use. Working under the individual guidance, participants will spend the day translating their drawings into the paint, resolving issues in the painting and working on their individual style and technique.

Course suitable for intermediate to advanced students.
