Jenny Danby- Still Life in Acrylics

Jenny's route to becoming an Artist was through Graphic Design, becoming serious about her career in painting after her work was exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Jenny is based in Bristol and has exhibited widely throughout the UK.

Jenny's studies of objects appear on first sight mimimalist and simple, but each painting has a delicate balance reflecting her background in graphic art.

Richard Turner- Seascapes in Watercolour and Pastel

Richard Turner- Seascapes in Watercolour and Pastel

Clevedon School Sixth Form Centre

The emphases of the Workshop will be to exploit the qualities of WATER COLOUR in preparation for PASTEL to be applied afterwards. This approach combines the less predictable effects of a liquid medium with the control of chalk pastel. The aim will be to set VALUE masses with an approximation of the chosen COLOUR theme, with the liquid medium. This flexible starting point will dictate how the image develops. This approach can also be used with washed in pastel, gouache, ink, or thin acrylic washes.

I will supply Uart sandpaper at cost price as this surface is idea for this process and readily available, it also takes watercolour well. 

Richard is a self- taught artist, influenced by reading and visiting exhibitions. His natural style is as a tonal painter with a preference for experimentation which suits his way of thinking. Richard is a regular exhibitor at the Mall Galleries and the Pastel Society.

Maxine Relton RWA - Achieving Visual Impact

  • Clevedon School Sixth Form Centre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In brief: A look at the theory and practice of ways to create visually arresting images, applicable to any medium, subject matter or style.

How can you create visually arresting images? Are there ways of taking your inspiration and source material beyond the predictable, instilling dramatic effect so that your work stands out from the mainstream?

 There are many strategies to help achieve this, whatever your level of experience. This workshop is for all abilities and any medium, style or subject matter because these ideas are for all of us: compelling images are what every artist aspires to create. 

Maxine will touch on a dozen ways of heightening the visual impact of your work. She will demonstrate briefly some of these approaches, and in each case will guide through a short imaginative project for you to explore the effects for yourself. Factors considered include the influence of scale, tonal contrast, angle of viewpoint, movement, focal point, surface treatment and the particular use of tools and materials. 

This workshop aims to help you develop your inner eye, whatever your individual approach. More understanding and control over ways of visualising and presenting your subject enable you to express yourself with greater impact and confidence.

 

 

Maxine Relton is both representational and abstract in her approach and enjoys working across a range of disciplines, exploring her ideas through drawing, painting, print, photography and mixed media.  She has taught widely at all levels at home and abroad, runs a gallery of her own work beside her studio in Gloucestershire and is an elected Academician at the Royal West of England Academy. She has been leading sketching tours to India for the past 10 years, and now also to Morocco.

Sarah Bee - Pastel Painting - A Mixed Media Approach

Sarah has been pastel painting using a mixed media approach for several years and was elected to the Pastel Society in 2005

Whilst her methods are constantly evolving, work is always inspired by, and an interpretation of colour, texture and light.

Sarah’s paintings are produced in the studio from sketches, notes and photos made on location. 

She will talk you through this and then demonstrate her process.

Following this, we will be working on mount board and layering gesso, acrylic and finally pastel and charcoal.

To this end, it is necessary for you to bring your own sketches, notes and photographs as source material.

It is hoped that you will find something within Sarah’s methods that can be incorporated into, and enliven your own painting process.
