LANDSCAPE FRAGMENTS

Explore the alluvial character of watercolours in a process-based workshop designed to reveal how the same forces that shape the landscape; including gravity, temperature, pressure and vibrations can be utilised in the watercolour medium to suggest fragments and detail of landscape features.

Exploration will include the techniques of washes, overlays, wicking, wet into wet and subtraction. Emphasis will be placed on identifying and exploiting the “happy accident” as a starting point to invention and creative extension of knowledge and skills.

Wednesday 19 April or Thursday 20 April, 6 - 8 pm
Devonport Regional Gallery
Cost: $20 / $18 Gallery members
Bookings required: 6424 8296 or artgallery@devonport.tas.gov.au
