Keep Creating - A Focus on Landscapes, Portraits and Still Life | Daniel Butterworth
  • Daniel has opened this workshop up to those that would also like to paint portraits and still life. Just bring your own subjects to paint and be guided by Daniel.

We are flying Daniel Butterworth from Melbourne for an exclusive painting workshop at our studio! With a career spanning over twenty years, Daniel Butterworth has exhibited extensively, won numerous awards and been a finalist in the Doug Moran Prize and Archibald Prize. Take this unique opportunity to learn a range of new techniques and gain insight into the loose painterly approach with Daniel.

In this engaging two-day workshop, Daniel will share with you his tips on materials, mediums, scale and light, developed from more than 20 years as a practising artist.
Through demonstrations and one-on-one feedback, Daniel will guide you as you create your landscape on cardboard – and you get to choose your subject!

What will I learn?

In this weekend workshop, you will discover the power of composition and the effect it can have on a work. Daniel will show you how to reflect on your subject and look at ways of amplifying the use of light.
You will develop at least one painting, more strikingly vital and direct than you have produced before!
Throughout the workshop, you will be encouraged to draw on your own creative voice, with a final critique at the end of the day.
