Inspiration Matisse.
to Sep 9

Inspiration Matisse.

Have just held a very successful Workshop at the Yurara Art Studios, Thornlands, Qld.  This took place over two Saturdays...24th and 31st August.   12 Artists attended and to all accounts had a very informative and creative time - working from a live model clothed in exotic Arabian type finery in a colourful setting similar to the ones in Matisse's paintings.  See photos. 

During the 2 days the artists did a variety of working drawings and took photographs for future compositions.  It is hoped that an exhibition of the works resulting from these two days will be held around December this year.  More information on this at a later date. 

If anyone is interested in getting in touch with me about holding a similar Workshop to this one...please do not hesitate to contact me.

WORKSHOP Inspiration - Matisse

I will be holding this Workshop at Yurara Art Society's Studio Rooms in Thornlands Qld. on two following Saturdays.  Commencing on Saturday August 24th from 9am to 4pm and also on the following Saturday (same times) 31st August. 

There will be an opportunity to draw and paint from a reclining model dressed in Arabesque style costume with surrounding still life of cane furniture, potted palms and decorative items to evoke the period that the painter Matisse so much used in his drawings and paintings.  The participants will have the opportunity to draw inspiration from this set-up to do many working drawings, take photographs and compose different works, both in abstract and contemporary realism.  All mediums will be able to be used.   On the second Saturday, participants will be encourage to finish some of their works without the model present but using their previous gleaned information.  The class is limited to 15 people.
