Art of Flow Workshop: Leaves and the Spaces Between (Online)
March 11 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Leaves and the spaces between…by Gabbi Lancaster
This free online painting workshop will be streamed via Facebook Live.
Saturday 11th March
11am – 1pm (Sydney time, AEDT)
Using whatever paint and paper you already have (with a simple suggested materials list in case).
To prepare for the workshop, you will be asked to wander outdoors in parks, gardens or the bush and collect leaves, branches, take photos… sit and observe, soak up the colours, shapes, smells, feelings, sounds of the eucalypt environment.
The workshop will begin with expressive painting all over the page considering the colours and all the sensations of eucalyptus.
You will need a sprig or 2 of eucalyptus leaves or a great view of a tree… We will be looking at the spaces between the leaves (the negative spaces) to mark out a design and block out the spaces with opaque paint. This will leave the leaves as the beautiful free and colourful layer that we started with.
Many beginners are amazed by what they can achieve and for more experienced artists this is a fun and dynamic way to explore the skills they already have and try something new.
