Working from Nature to Abstraction

May 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am - May 28, 2019 @ 4:00 pm


Working from Nature to Abstraction

In this new workshop we will be looking at structured processes on how to abstract from nature. Using found materials for inspiration, we will draw the forms, shapes and shadows using gestural ink, washes, river mud, charcoal and water based paints to explore different compositions.

On day two we will move onto canvas. Using  our ideas  from the day before with large brushes and poured paints- we will  layer, print and mask to create a finished painting. We will talk about the feel of the work, the energy, issues and location.

We have the beautiful surrounds of River Hawk ranch as our inspiration. Enjoy a delicious lunch and then finish the day with a glass of wine contemplating your work with fellow artists.

River Hawk Ranch is the perfect place for a weekend of creative immersion with one of Australia’s best art-practitioners. This will be one of the final workshops to be held at RiverHawk so please register your interest below as it will fill fast.
