Live Art Workshops: Painting-Still Life On Canvas

Workshop Image

Many people feel still life can be a bit boring – on the contrary, there is much to be learnt from still life studies, and some really vibrant and energetic still life settings can be created easily.  Firstly working from  a “live” three dimensional  setting provides an experience  which is a totally different feel to working from a photo. By initially completing some thumbnail sketches in pencil and charcoal (increasing observational skills) then creating some quick colour swatches (colour mixing) our composition becomes a really important consideration when making a drawing or painting look balanced. Working in pencil and charcoal initially, you will then be working in acrylics to create your colour swatches and finally working towards your still life on canvas to take home. Canvas, brushes, charcoal and acrylic paints will be supplied. By all means bring your own kit along if you wish to do so.

Workshop Artist: Lizzie Connor

Lizzie is a professional artist and tutor with approximately 30 years’ experience as both. Originally from Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, she has lived in many places around Australia and now resides at Mudjimba Beach, on the Sunshine Coast. She has won many awards in South East Queensland, and to date has held approximately 24 solo exhibitions and a number of joint exhibitions.

Her art tutoring has taken her to many places including the Greek Islands, Norfolk Island and a regular annual week of drawing and painting in Fiji, as well as working and completing residencies interstate. Her works are created from the natural world and particularly the ocean and beach environment where she has spent all her life, and she has spent many years creating methods that now have become instinct. Different trends come and go, and she hopes her work will stand the test of time and remain as relevant to its source as the day it was created and that it evokes some wonderful emotions for the people viewing it.
