Workshop with Paul Margocsy. Painting – A Walk on the Wild Side.

Paul at work in his studio

2 days, Tuesday and Wednesday 6th and 7th September 2022 South Durras Hall. Cost $240 for members or $265 for non-members. This workshop will show you the beauty and wonder of wildlife art. With the use of watercolours, gouache and air brushing it will enable you not only to paint feathers and fur, but to paint attitude, character and photo quality within your subject. You will position your subject, paint the surrounding habitat and give a totally realistic look to your art. Composition is the main attribute to any painting and with this achieved the technique used will excite and enthral not just the artist but the viewer. It’s a fun course and a time to learn how to manage this medium using different techniques to create these wonderful natural creatures. The backgrounds and the “props” of wildlife art are important when you are painting realism. Don’t let the word watercolour put you off as my technique is dry brushing and not wet on wet. Suitable for all levels of artists beginner to experienced.

Workshop with Penny Lovelock. Painting -The Figure in the Landscape

Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th May. Time 10.-3.30 Venue: Greek Church Hall North Batemans Bay.
I live on the South Coast of NSW now, and have been painting and drawing since I was a child. I now paint in oils and acrylics, and am interested in the narrative and landscape around me. My main interest seems to be women in landscape and strange little happenings. I love animals and usually you will see an animal or bird appearing in my paintings.

Penny has illustrated over 30 books and has won 3 awards for her illustration work.
