About the event

For the very reasonable price of $120pp Jo will walk you through creating an authentic piece of art that you will be immesely proud of...

Here's what Jo has to say...

1. Being courageous and creative with colour. My aim would be to help you loosen up a little to the degree that you can comfortably accentuate some colours to your taste beyond their natural life presentation. To help you discover that if you don't have the exact colour palette to create an identical replica of an image you realise it really doesn't matter. You'll walk away from this knowing how to work with what you've got and be satisfied that you're creating a painting, not a photo and that by doing so you'll likely make it look better/more interesting anyway.

2. How to bring a feeling of life and a sense of movement into your work.

3. How to use an undercoat to solve any problems before you tackle the colour.

4. How to and where to begin applying the colour to your masterpiece.

5. For those of you who are new to painting I will also be teaching you how to hold your brush and view your work from a distance. How to place the paint on the brush. Lots of little tips and tricks to make the journey swifter and easier.

Please bring with you a reference photo of your choice...

You'll need to organise:

- desk easel. If attending Bundaberg Marlies usually has several on hand, but do check

- canvas board or stretched max 500mmx600mm

- your image already drawn up on your canvas and your reference photo brought with you, ideally on a device to help you zoom in for required detail though not completely necessary

- at least 4 brushes ranging from 2-3cm in width down to a details brush

- decent painting palette (you're using oils now. Plates or plastic container lids won't cut it)

- turps and a jar to hold it. I prefer a proper jar so I don't risk the turps leaking. Just an old peanut butter jar is fine.

- roll of paper towel

- disposable gloves to protect your painting hand

- a warm smile and willingness to be challenged.
