The Schoolhouse for Art is delighted to host 2 workshops with award winning artist Aine Divine this September.
What to expect from the workshop:
What colours to mix to represent the shadows on the skin, the hair and so on. Ways of using the flat brushes to explain the position of the features, and the general forms of the model, swiftly and with ease. Demonstration of lifting-off, being able to lay the colour down with confidence, knowing you can ‘eat into it’ like a rubber in charcoal later on.
Encouragement to be fully attentive to the shapes that make up the model, to steady yourself and observe in the way needed for painting. Each person will have individual attention and demonstrations. There really is great joy to be had in working from life in this way.
Dates: 8th & 9th / 10th & 11th September
Times: 10am – 4pm
Location: Schoolhouse for Art, Enniskerry
