- May 27 & 28
The purpose of this workshop is to demonstrate a simple but effective approach to painting urban landscapes. The goal is to capture an impression of the subject and to capture it quickly, using big, bold washes. The emphasis is always on impression over detail. The motivation is to allow the painting to tell as story.
In this workshop you will learn:
- How to create an exciting centre of interest using figures and cars
- How to create a strong composition and to use value and colour to direct the viewer’s eye to your centre of interest.
- You will also learn simple and fun ways to quickly create both figures and cars.
The workshop will is structured so that no fancy drawing skills are required!
For many years I have concentrated on cityscapes. I paint them because I love the energy of cities and am continually fascinated by people. My goal is to capture the interactions between people and the places they live. I can often be found wandering the streets and alleys, sketchbook in hand, capturing those fleeting interactions of everyday life. I enjoy the challenge of drawing and painting the shapes of city life but I judge a work to be successful when it tells a compelling story that draws the viewer in.
