Course Outline:
If you are an artist who wishes to move out of your comfort zone and into the unknown, then this is the course for you.

The primary aims of this workshop is to learn to work with spontaneity, gain further artistic independence, the application of creative writing and to use your reference material as reference only.
The workshop will begin working with charcoal, developing line and tonal values. We will then focus on the progression of our initial technique through the contamination of the charcoal using white acrylic paint to complete a tonal painting. DJW will teach you how to effectively seal the charcoal artwork to allow layers of coloured glaze to be applied over the abstracted black and white in order to explore implied mood through the application of a range of colours. We will then continue with this artwork as a foundation to insert additional layers of content using any reference.
The combination of these various techniques will be applied together to create your major piece on canvas. At all times throughout the workshop we will be discussing composition and balance whilst also working with spontaneity to give your paintings an exciting freedom, movement and emotion.

My aim at all times is to work with the individual and develop their idealism.
