PAINTING WITH COLOUR with Dr Louise Allen; One day Oil or Acrylic Workshop.
Dr Louise Allen, Independent Fine Artist: Holding degrees in Fine Art, Sociology and Dramatic Writing, Louise Allen is an award winning colourist painter, and an experienced University Lecturer. She uses oil on canvas and works out of a studio in West Auckland. She develops visual narratives using memory and imaginative associations. Producing neither fully abstract nor fully representational works, she negotiates this paradigmatic tension in the Fine Art Academy through balancing iconographic and symbolic forms which are then made more deeply and unconsciously associative through an evocative use of colour.
In the morning we will discuss experiences with painting with colour and set some goals. Then we will experiment with colour mark-making and colour palette. In the afternoon a fresh painting will be started based ‘loosely’ on a still life. Participants would bring their own materials ie: brushes, mixing and cleaning fluids, something to paint on (some paper for the morning and then a canvas or paper for the afternoon session) and Acrylic or Oil paints (no watercolours or inks please). Please Note: No black or white paint is allowed. Easels are available. Maximum 12 participants. Session won’t run if there are fewer than 8 participants.
