A two day painting workshop – focusing on darkness and light.

With Artist Richard Heys

25 & 26 March 2023 10.00 – 16.00

Darkness and light are the dancing ground of the visual arts. Between the staining of canvas and fingers lies the unrealised potential of painting, the authentic human urge to create. Focusing on the phenomena of the warm and cool polarity of colour, we shall deepen our understanding of the whole poetry of colour through visualizations and observation with prisms. To strengthen our understanding of structure we will playfully explore compositions to establish balanced and richly contrasting painting.

“I am interested in the miracle of being alive, I want to be in the world – I have no agenda. I paint to understand myself in the world…I paint to find myself. Authenticity – it has to be what one is about, I’m trying to get to what I’m about.”

Ian McKeever in conversation with Marjorie Allthorpe-Guyton
