Jon will guide students through methods he employs in his daily art practice to create edgy and unique illustrative landscape paintings. Unique to these teachings, Jon will provide students with a fresh skillset, that you can utilize in your own practice. He will guide you through these techniques in four components, taught over the two days. Each component is a building block for the next. In day one you will establish new methods of mixing colour and how to apply it in interesting ways to different surfaces. On day two, you go out into the landscape to create on-the-site illustrative paintings of our surroundings, integrating line drawing onto our painted surfaces. Finally, you will tie these images together through experimental layering to create your abtract piece.

Although this workshop is geared to those with painting experience, all experience levels are welcome. Please be in touch if you have questions.

    How to communicate the idea or ‘narrative’ for your painting through design: the organization of shapes, directional lines, and scale. Whether the finished painting is abstract or representational, the composition forms its basic structure and engages the viewer. This helps support and communicate your original idea, and it allows for more freedom during the painting process. In this workshop you will learn to utilize design skills to produce meaningful and memorable paintings. We'll be painting with Chinese ink and watercolours.

     

    Instructor:  

    Zoë graduated in 1982, with a degree in Fine Arts and Illustration from Harrow College of Art in London England (now University of Westminster). She worked for several years in London as a freelance illustrator producing imagery for book and magazine publishing, design and advertising. Through her natural flare for colour and movement, Zoë began to gravitate towards the animation industry, painting background scenery for classically animated feature films including Anastasia and Titan AE. Zoë lived a typically nomadic lifestyle moving from place to place following film contracts in Europe, the US, and Canada. Zoe states, “my commitment to painting, particularly from nature, has been constant through my career and I've had the good fortune of living in some very picturesque and paintable places”.
