Chasing abstraction in the landscape. 

Paul’s art path has been an exploratory journey from drawing to painting, a creative adventure rich with struggles, lessons and personal discovery. This hands on, weekend workshop, unpacks the key practical and creative insights of that journey and gives participants a pathway, tools and perspectives to extend their current drawing, painting and creative practice.

Day One – explores graphic and linear approaches to the semi-abstracted landscape, investigating the expressive use of line to build formal design and perspective qualities in the work. We begin with drawing and then, with mixed-media, guide the drawing towards painting.

Day Two – focuses on more direct painting, developing a tone shape approach, exploring the impact of light modeling form and colour and mark making as emotion.
