Set in the beautiful coastal hinterland on a 100 acre private retreat in Bangalow, this workshop is designed to address the fundamentals of landscape painting using a structured & layered oil painting process in distinct stages from beginning to end. Plein air (painting directly from landscape) is an immediate painting method which requires an exploration of colour and tonal analysis. This will be detailed to help artists gain a deeper understanding of the nuances of colour accuracy and observation when responding to place.
