Bird Painting Workshop - October 26th

Bird Painting Workshop - October 26th


When: 1pm - 5pm Saturday 26th October, 2019

Where: Wellwood Health, 3918 Pacific Hwy, Loganholme QLD 4129

Come along and try some new techniques, and learn how to use fluid acrylic and mixed media to create your own bird artwork.

You will:

  • experiment with different amounts of pigment and water to learn how to control the paint’s appearance, while learning layering techniques and brush control to create interesting mark-making

  • see how adding salt to your paint creates interesting textural effects (this is one of my favourite parts!)

  • be provided with bird reference images to work from, or you can bring your own photo to work from if you wish!

  • create a base layer for your artwork in fluid acrylic, then introduce mixed media like pencils and pastels to finish of your piece how you choose

The workshop will flow between periods of demonstration and practise, and you’ll spend the later half of the afternoon finishing of your piece at your own pace. I’ll be working on my own bird right along with you, but I’ll also be checking in with everyone frequently to allow for plenty of one-on-one chats and guidance or feedback if you wish!

You’ll be provided with all the materials you’ll need, and you’ll take home your finished bird artwork, your “swatch” sheet of texture experiments, plus a printed guide listing our main fluid acrylic techniques and all the materials we’ve used throughout the day.

Workshop is limited to a small group, for plenty of one-on-one time, so you won’t feel like you are just one of a big class.

It’s best to either bring along an apron, or wear something that won’t be destroyed by a little paint!

Tickets are limited, and may only be refunded prior to 5 days before the workshop date.
