Create a Soulful Landscape

Are you looking for something creative to do?

Are you visiting Dunsborough with a small group? 

If you love seascapes and have always wanted to create your own painting, this is for you. What's more, it wont just be a painting, it will have a bit of you in it because you are unique. A painting with soul. 

In this two and a half hour session Heidi will introduce you to the tonal impressionist art techniques that were passed on to her. She will walk you though her process, how to observe and guide you in your own creation of a painting using those techniques and tips. Come and enjoy seeing things differently and meet some other like minded people. You will complete and take home your own painting, ready to hang!

This workshop is perfect for all levels of experience; from those who have never picked up a paintbrush and beginners to practicing artists who wish to try and new approach. Beginners find Heidi's workshops non-threatening and safe, with gentle encouraging instruction that will see your creativity unleashed. Regular artists appreciate a different way of approaching a scene and generous tip sharing. Some come once to have a memorable experience and are inspired to continue on their artistic journey. Others come back again and again to build their skills and enjoy some creative time for themselves, applying their learning to different subject matter. 

This session is perfect for small groups of family or friends, or you’re welcome to book in on your own.

The subject of this workshop is seascape, where we will work from a photograph of a South West beach taken by Heidi. This is not a paint and sip class; you’ll have plenty of time to immerse yourself in the experience of painting, have guidance and create a unique work with our own flare.

Over the course of the workshop you will be encouraged in how to really see and observe, and experience the glorious feeling of losing yourself in time and space while you work on something creative. I will guide and assist you along the way with colour mixing, how to attend to tonal values to produce realistic, three dimension works, how to resolve mistakes and different ways of mark making. You will work with a my usual palette of colours in acrylic paints and hear a few tips for how you would use the same techniques in oils as is my usual practice.
