Spend a morning with artist Brent Dodd where he will expose you the world of painting, in particular how he goes about creating his artwork. The idea is to illustrate the technique of Identifying and understanding the ‘code’ required in order to ‘abstract’ or simplify the three-dimensional world onto a two-dimensional surface/canvas. This will be done through drawing, initially, later moving into brush techniques. You can learn how to identify your own individual language and style of expression. Look into how to use reference material, including how to source it, refer it, acknowledge it, and transfer it onto canvas.
- Start and complete your own painting in one morning.
- All materials provided.
- The sessions are stand alone and not modular.
It's about confidence building and working with Brent who has long crossed the border into the professional realm of painting, having been at the canvas for more than ten thousand hours. Of his own admission, there are a lot of mistakes that you can make - too many to make on your own. So take every opportunity to learn from someone else, even if its simply to see something differently.
