Art Retreat at Wallingford Homestead, New Zealand with Judith White BA. AWI.

Travelling to another country to paint and draw is a unique opportunity; to be stimulated and inspired by an unfamiliar landscape. Capturing an essential quality and sense of place will be an important issue during the workshop. Escape to the Hawkes Bay area of New Zealand’s North Island with Judith White for an inspiring five day workshop, exploring the landscape around Wallingford Homestead. One of the aims of the workshop will be to try and foster your own sense of connection to the environment and personal experience.

The focus of this workshop will be mainly acrylic painting techniques using texture, design and colour with some mixed media (charcoal, pastel etc). You will be playing with backgrounds and also learning many different application techniques. Exciting colours and colour combinations will be used, taking reference from nature and life and applying our own little twists. We will get a bit more adventurous and explore the unknown, and also resurrect some old works. For those not so adventurous there is always plenty of detail to apply which is included into the process anyway, a bit of fine tuning.
