Online Workshop: Still Life Painting
Sat 10 Apr 2021, 10.30am - 4pm
Join us for the second of two online painting workshops led by Yorkshire-based artist Richard Kitson. Taking inspiration from works in the Wakefield Permanent Art Collection along with planting in The Hepworth Wakefield Garden, you will explore techniques in observation, measurement, colour mixing and paint applications to paint a botanical still-life arrangement of your choosing.
Following introductions and demonstrations, you will work as a group on studies based on Tulips by Emily Murray Patterson (pictured above). You will then work on your own individual pieces, using Murray Patterson, Anne Estelle Rice and Margaret Firth for reference and inspiration (pictured below).
