 Painting from Observation and Imagination

JANUARY 20 to JANUARY 24, 2020                                  FEE $650 AUD                                

The focus of this workshop is to develop a painting by using both observation and imagination.  A major challenge for artists is to realise their personal vision.

In this workshop Katarina will teach how to incorporate observation by using still life objects, imagination, photo reference and anything that prompts memory or personal story. You will be asked to bring whatever resources you need to bring your memory or vision to reality in an oil painting. This will ensure that your painting is unique to you.

Classes will consist of demonstrations and lectures followed by individual one-on-one critiques of students while they work. In addition to the concepts already mentioned, other topics will include the technical processes for oil painting, as well as an understanding of value, light, form, composition and paint application.


Who should attend?
Anyone  aiming to enhance their painting skills and incorporate their imagination.

What's included?
  • Tutor demonstrations

Drawing the Portrait with Russian Sauce
(pronounced "saw-oose")

JANUARY 13 to JANUARY 17, 2020                COURSE FEE $750 AUD

Russian sauce is a medium from the Dark Ages and few of today’s painters have had the opportunity to work with it.  Sauce was a nearly-extinct medium, a special clay that offeres a full ten-value tonal range, but in the tumult of the last century, sauce was all but lost to the world’s artists but it survived only in Russia.
Sauce can be used dry and/or wet  within the same drawing/painting. It is a stick much like a soft pastel, but when applied to paper, it gives a sensation of warm silk: slightly greasy but not oily. Breaking the Sauce down into its powder form it can be used as a wet medium.

In this workshop, Katerina will be teaching the versitility and the use of sauce in its dry and wet form.  The primary focus of this class will be drawing the portrait from a live model using the medium of sauce. 

Class sessions will consist of lectures and demonstrations, followed by one-on-one critiques.  The topics covered will include the anatomy and planes of the portrait, as well as concepts regarding light, shadow and form.
Who should attend?
Anyone wanting to enhance their drawing skills and learn about new matreials and their handelling. 

What's included?
  • Tutor demonstrations
  • One on one tuition and critique
  • Model fees
  • Sauce is provided and more sauce is available for purchase.
