This is a full day oil painting workshop during which Robyn will demonstrate in steps how to execute a painting focusing on painting clear water and under water elements. The approach used by Robyn is an “Alla Prima” or wet-on-wet.

At around 12:30 we will stop for a 30 minute break during which you can have lunch. Please note that lunch is not provided although there will be some light food. Please note that this is an oil painting workshop however no turps is allowed. Only Gamsol or any other similar odourless free mineral spirits are allowed. By the end of the day you will have your own finished painting to take home with you.

From time to time requests are done by participants to paint in acrylics. Robyn’s technique is wet-on-wet and hence due to acrylics fast drying time it is very difficult to achieve the effects that can be achieved by oils using acrylics. Robyn has indicated that will be OK as long as retarder is used to keep the acrylic from drying quickly, and the person is experienced with blending. Acrylic painters should also realise that colours and outcomes will vary, and they will need to rely on their own experience to translate the demonstrated techniques to acrylic.

Level: Suitable for intermediates and advanced and beginners with some experience in oil painting

Supplied: Standing / seated easels

About the tutor: Robyn is well known as a prominent Australian wilderness landscape and seascape painter of contemporary realism who started painting in the early 70’s – when traditional art was really taking off and Sydney Galleries were frequent and successful. Most of what she has learned has been learned from the observation of nature and constant hard work – being a self-realised artist. Having spent many years painting en plein-air she then graduated to studio work and subjects requiring more time and reference while still retaining the Alla-Prima technique. (Direct painting, wet-in-wet).
