Paint With Canvas Pack Available for $80

Due to popular demand, we are thrilled to have Bronwyn Searle join us once again with a Still Life in Oils workshop!

About this workshop

In this workshop Bronwyn will show how to set up a still life using lights to change the mood, taking note of shadows and teach how to best capture the light. You will also learn how to take ordinary everyday scenes and interpret them into your own style.

What will I Learn?

In this workshop participants will be shown how to use a diary, set up a still life using lights to change the mood, taking note of shadows, then how to grid up the images onto the canvas. How to mix and prepare colour. There will be plenty of painting time!
