Combining Stories – A Landscape and Icons that you love!

For this Workshop we are taking the imagery Artist Wyn Vogel – demonstrated at the Royal Brisbane Ag Show – The EKKA 2022 and using these as our working images!

Wyn will share with you and help you will explore how to lay a landscape out onto your paper and bring it to life with vibrant colour – the landscape we will draw inspiration from is taken from the mouth of Stumers Creek – on the Sunshine Coast and the ‘Icons’ will be The Australian Flora that we have been working with in our Studio lessons over the last few weeks – Gum Blossoms and/or Grevillea you are welcome to join me for this Workshop.
