This workshop will introduce students to an unorthodox approach to painting. Be prepared to scrape, spray, throw and roll paint; and leave brushes to last. Working with warm and cool colours as well as transparent colours for glazing, exploring some mediums, starting with the abstract to impressionism, students will be encouraged to unleash their untapped creativity without restriction. Enjoy demonstrations and Jenni’s individual guidance. You will leave with a newfound creative confidence and a greater understanding of managing acrylics. No previous experience is necessary; just an open mind!!! Open to all comers, 18 years and over.
Day1: I will be introducing students to Acrylics tools which will be used throughout the workshop, e.g., rollers, scrapers, and stencils. These will be used on our first painting of shapes and colour.
Chooks/Pet Portrait: Canvas size 50 x 50cm
Day 2: The next introduction will be to “Keep it Simple.” The will focus on the approach in telling a story with few colours. On this painting, we will use a diffuser.
Figure/Favourite Things: Canvas Size 60 x 60cm
Day 3: Today you will be using Acrylics in a Textural Style to create an abstract background first adding modelling compound to our paint to create a thicker surface before placing an image on top. This is where the story begins!
Birds in Blossom: Canvas size 60 x 60cm.
Day 4: You will again use Acrylics in a Textural thick application, lastly with a watercolour application. This will result in an interesting finish.
Water Lilies: Canvas size 80 x 80cm
Day 5: Finish all existing works plus varnish your work will be ready to take home.
Jenni was born in Kerang Victoria and lived and was educated in Bendigo where her interest in painting began viewing the great Australian masters at the Bendigo Regional Art Gallery thus starting a long life love affair of viewing galleries Australia wide. After marriage and family and living in such places as Mackay, Isisford, Cardwell, Augathella, and Clifton she continued to do some painting and was a member of The Flying Art School for many years travelling hundreds of kilometres to designated centres. Jenni is basically self-taught and is constantly improving her skills by attending other artist’s workshops, e.g., McGregor Summer Schools Toowoomba, Mitchell Summer School’s Bathurst and Clifton Art workshops. Jenni is currently living at Glenview on the Sunshine Coast she achieves a realistic expression in her creative freestyle painting leaving the viewer free to exercise their own imagination. These paintings have an appealing sense of colour, freedom, and movement with subjects close to nature. Twenty one Pieces of Jenni’s paintings are hanging throughout the Holy Spirit Hospital at Chermside Brisbane. Jenni’s work is continually on display at Hearts and Minds Gallery Hasting Street, Noosa www.heartsandmindsart.com.au
