Composition and Depth of Field – Using Colour

with No Comments

Join me for our Fish Lane Studios – South Brisbane Qld – Picnic and Paint – 11th May 2024 – 10am to 2pm – with a delicious picnic thanks to our neighbour – Birds Nest Yakitori Japanese – Restaurant, on the Deck of 4 Edmondstone Street South Brisbane QLD., your Lunch to the value of $25.oo is included in your Ticket price!

So for this Workshop, we will look at this and other café scenes from images we have captured on our holidays in Europe and understand what attracted us to these places ………… apart from the memory of what happened there!

In the image above the colours of the umbrellas, the flowers and the fruit all add pops of colour – as we look at the composition of this Market we will analyse how these colours add to the depth of field in the photo and subsequently in our paintings.

Something Different Gold Coast 21st February 2024 – Celebrate Chinese New Year – A Chinese Lantern Still Life – a conversation re Pro/Brush Markers and techniques for painting Chinese Dragons

with No Comments

There is often no reason for moving to multi-media other than the whim of the Artist – but with these Marker Pens – there are strong options for achieving texture and interesting options to lift your Artwork from the mundane to the vibrant!

With this Workshop – Artist Wyn Vogel will discuss options for a combination of Watercolour and Marker Pens – what better time to be tempted with the bright colours of the Chinese New Year and their gorgeous ‘Lanterns’ these are the inspiration – there are funky and traditional to choose from!

The structure of the paper and thread that are the basis for the construct of these Lanterns lend themselves to the being shaped with the styles on the end of the marker pen.

Don’t forget to bring your lunch and a mug – tea and coffee will be provided.

Modern Botanical – Gold Coast – 24th January 2024 – Inspiration From The Flower Markets – Working with Watercolour Inks

with No Comments

Artist Wyn Vogel will bring together her favourite colours and shape for you to choose from and we will explore the textures and tones that can be evoked by the use of Watercolour Inks – especially underpainting the shadows like you can see in this image prior to loading any watercolour paint!

If you would like to under paint – it is important to use acrylic water poof ink that will dry and stay stable when watercolour is applied – for this reason I would recommend any of the acrylic inks you will see in store – if you want to remain pure to the watercolour mantra – you can use the watercolour inks but they will mix and blend like watercolours as you layer them – so be prepared for this to happen – remember you will have 10% discount from Eckersley’s on any materials you choose to buy for this Workshop!
