Shadows and Perspective Techniques to Explore

– Fish Lane Studios –

Studio 2/4 Edmondstone Street – South Brisbane Qld – 4101

9am to 12 Noon

A Fortnightly Workshop to get you inspired for your Weekends!

*** Remember we have a new Restaurant open on the deck with us – Bird’s Nest Yakitori Restaurant >>> https://www.birdsnest.co/locations-and-menus/west-end/ – Marie and her Team open at 12 noon on a Saturday so if you want to linger on and enjoy lunch – get a group of friends together – come and Workshop and then do lunch – this isn’t a ‘Picnic and Paint’ but you can still extend your day if you like!

Each Workshop will be loaded with the idea of exploring a specific technique – in this 1st Workshop we will explore the concepts of shadows and perspective – how to position your subjects and the colours of shadows – what are these and how to use them?

Workshops will be loaded separately so you can BOOK 1 or more as you have time to paint 🌞🎨 the current dates planned are:

  • Saturday – 3rd February 2024 – Shadows and Perspective
  • Saturday – 17th February 2024 – Modern Botanical – this is an ongoing exploration with Artist and Curator of Fish Lane Studios – Wyn Vogel – whose loose watercolour technique allows the imagery to flow off the paper!
  • Saturday – 2nd March 2024 – Waterways – Sea and River – potentially a Guest Artist to be confirmed as part of this Workshop – watch this space!

*** Coffee can be bought from Cups on Melbourne – on the corner of Edmondstone and Melbourne Streets – you can purchase and bring coffee to the Studio with you to enjoy on your way in!

Materials to Bring:

  • 1 sheet Arches 300gsm Watercolour Paper, OR
  • Some 300gsm Arches pad A3
  • And some smaller sheets of watercolour paper to try out ideas – again experimental so these can be scraps from other Work if you have them!

  • Ultramarine Blue – Green Shade

Brushes – at least those below –

  • Hair dryer to dry your work between layers
  • Backing board to tape your sample papers down (core board or similar from Bunnings) and tape to manage your paper – we don’t use an easel we tape the paper to the backing board so we can move the paper and tilt or turn as needed to manage your paint and water.
