Abstract Journey…

In the last year my work has changed enormously, there is more cohesion and each piece is individually much stronger. As I produce new work I will put it on this Portfolio and use this Blog  to talk about the lessons learned, how it has helped develope the work, suggested exercises to do as well as my thoughts for the future.

My new method of working involves an overlap. I don’t finish a series of pieces until the next set has started to develop so every time I come into the studio I have both old and new work to develop and moving between these helps me focus and make stronger judgements on where a piece is going and what it might need, and if it indeed is working ….

I welcome to follow along with me on this journey!

Spring Watercolour Workshop starts 4th April

With Spring finally in the air, I am starting again our weekly watercolour workshops from 1:00 to 4:00 at Cuckoo Farm Studios. Working both in our caravan and also in the grounds of this lovely farm.

Every Monday for 10 Weeks (except bank holidays), I have a new approach for this workshop which will take you through the world of colours this season.

We start on the 4th April looking at the rainbow, setting up your colour palettes with a choice of standard, delicate, intense and old masters and With an overview of what is useful to have tools-wise for painting in Watercolours.

  
The following Monday, the 11th, we will explore working with cool and warm colours. This is very important if you want to have a clean luminous watercolour. As part of this we will look at what muddies your watercolours so you can avoid it in future.

The next Monday, 18th April, we will look at Complimentary colours so as to be able to control the tonal range of your colours, remembering that in watercolour we only work with the White of the paper. Now, well equipped to control our medium we will dive into our colours.

As each of you will be working with different palettes, it will be fascinating bring these all now together, mixing and combining them to create a rainbow of coloured lights…which is the ideal watercolour.

On the 25th, we step out on our colour journey with YELLOW. We will examine the range of yellows available, cool and warm, intense and old master, and how to use these. Exploring colour mixtures. We will paint both in the caravan and outside, limiting our colour palettes so as to be able to gain a good control of this particular hue.

After the Bank Holiday we return, this time to explore BLUE. As you can see, we will not be moving chronologically but building your colour knowledge in terms of what is needed as your next linking colour.

At the end of these ten weeks you should have a much wider control of colour which will serve you well not only in watercolour but in all media.

I hope you will join us on this journey!

Costs for the ten weeks is £150.00 payable on booking. Numbers will be limited to five participants only. If you have not attended a class before, the first class may be booked for only 20.00 so you can have a taste of these session, with the balance payable at the end of first day if you would like to continue. Priority will be given those booking the entire course. A range of material will be provided as always to supplement your own as required. An A3 watercolour pad and small sketchbook required as well as your existing watercolours and brushes ( please do not purchase any new materials until guidelines provided on the first day) . Notes on what has been covered weekly will be provided at the end of each class to help guide you.

 

I look forward to taking this journey with you!
