Forests and Flowers in Acrylics | De Gillett Cox

In De Gillett Cox's workshop, everyone will create their very own unique and creative painting in a safe and supportive environment. You will walk away with the skills and techniques to create your very own creative artworks!  And De runs the workshop with her artist daughter Ali Gillett, so you get twice the instruction!

What will I learn?

De will show you how to develop beautiful transparency and illumination in your work.

You will be laying in the darks with a colour rub first, then stenciling across that with De’s forest and flower stencils. You use the first layer to establish runs, spatter and colour variation, before obscuring the parts of the image you don't want with opaque paint. The contrast of transparency and opacity is breathtaking!

The focus will be to encourage and support everyone's unique individuality in mark making to produce a beautiful painting to take away with them.

Who is this workshop suitable for?

This is suitable for all levels of experience including absolute beginners.

About De Gillett Cox

De Gillett Cox is a practicing professional artist and fine arts tutor with 20 years’ experience in teaching painting, drawing and sculpture across a wide range of media. De holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Queensland College of Art (2012).  She concentrates on bringing the joy of making art to the wider world as a tutor for Arts Tree. De’s lessons are exciting, fun, and are guaranteed to push you out of bad habits and onwards into artistic excellence. De works in a wide range of styles from the photo-realistic to the wild and impetuous and everywhere in between — portraiture, flight, figures, landscape and more. Her wilder work has been described as ‘recklessly sumptuous’ and she specialises in busting students out of their tight and over-controlled beginnings to create beautiful, painterly, exciting works without ever ignoring the importance of learning and practicing good drawing technique.
