Colour workshop

The workshop held at Art Shed Brisbane last week was very successful. The participants were able to do some serious colour investigation and then put their experiments to good use completing an abstract painting on the second day. They all worked from the same reference and it was fascinating to see how each artist interpreted the same image. (The artists decided on the reference themselves) 

Colour experiment - 760mm x 600mm Oil on canvas Carol Lee Beckx

They were very enthusiastic and produced some exciting work. Not to be left out, I got in the swing of things by starting a canvas myself with the same reference when I got home on Friday evening. The inspiration you get from your students is the wonderful aspect of teaching.

The photographs show some of the work done over the two days. All the paintings below are acrylic on canvas
