Rob Walker 

Free, loose and exciting!

Watercolour and pen workshop. Create dynamic paintings and learn how to loosen up your mark-making.

Rob will give 2 demonstrations – one in the morning and one after lunch and you will have plenty of time to work on your own paintings with Rob on hand to guide you.

Rob creates dynamic watercolours with the odd dash of pastel, pen and acrylic ink. He will share his techniques.

Landscape, “Tear it up/ reconstruct the process”

Each artist will need to bring along images, drawings, photographs of a favourite place, in the landscape. Photographs they have taken and printed off.

I will also bring some in case we need to change anything. Each artist will be working from whatever they bring.

We will be considering Composition, and what each artist wants to say about there place. A series of small drawings will be made with this in mind. Constant selection and editing will be going on in the early stages. A larger format will evolve from these initial exercises, images will be deconstructed and reconstructed in the pursuit of a  new personal image which determines something unexpected and not predetermined. 

In its development the artists will be encouraged to be very expressive in their use of media and mixture of media.

The emphasis will be on the process and not, in this case the final outcome. The process hopefully will be challenging and thought provoking. Not only in the use of materials but also on what a landscape could be.

Materials to bring, Acrylic paints, watercolours, acrylic inks ( if they have them ). Pastels/ chalks, PVA glue, drawing board A2 size minimum. Strong watercolour paper…..300lb in weight , a sheet sized 30″ X 22″ and other water colour paper which can be smaller, A2/A3. Tissue roll, rags. Own brushes……one should be a house painters brush about 2″ width.

However I will bring a range of materials etc. Which can be used.

( We will be only using water based paints for the work, no oils ).
