Join celebrated regional artist Rowen Matthews for this two day abstracted landscape painting workshop.

Suitable for intermediate to advanced students.

In this workshop we will explore how to use large palette knives or large brushes to make urgent, abstracted, brave, and bold responses to the natural world. We will pay particular attention to methods of 1. Using colour correctly to indicate distance and 2. Using fresh bold marks to reflect the powerful energies in the land. Please bring a selection of photographs of a place or places that you have visited and loved. This can be any landscape, mountainscape, seascape, desertscape, anyplace.
