This practical workshop will appeal to all levels of experience. Louise will share her knowlegde and techniques and help artists develop their own style of Jersey landscape.
Louise explains ‘Direct experience of the natural landscape is central to my work. Bringing that experience to the studio where I make the paintings becomes part of the collective history that develops in the work bringing the past, present and the potential of the future together. Intrinsic to that experience is the quality of light within each day: the uniqueness that transforms the known to the mysterious each of us bringing our own knowledge and past to what is seen and felt in front of us.
The day will start looking at the exhibition 'Light in Time', followed by going out into St Helier to make quick small drawings using the panorama of 360 degrees. Materials will be provided for this part of the workshop. Back in the studio, we will use these to construct an image which incorporates the images, and the development from line into tone and colour.
What to bring along:
Please bring paints, boards, paper, pencils. Water/oil jars, rags etc. You have to generate an image from the morning’s outdoor work. Please also wear suitable clothing that reflect the weather situation.
There will be sandwiches at lunch time, however those with particular food or drink requirements may prefer to self cater.
