Workshops & Exhibitions

*Workshops are conducted by request on a professional basis for art groups-societies throughout Australia-and also overseas on availability. Having extensive knowledge and experience in teaching and working in a variety of media, I do have available teaching times, however,with some consideration given to advanced notice.

It is advisable to make contact one year, or at least six months in advance to arrange suitable dates and times,chosen teaching medium,costing,etc.

Please feel welcome to contact me for this information.

 PASTEL TECHNIQUE: VERY INTERESTING TO OBSERVE THE RESURGENT INCREASE IN DEMAND FOR  WORKSHOPS  ON PASTEL TECHNIQUE IN RECENT TIMES, PARTICULARLY IN MELBOURNE,QUEENSLAND, SOUTH AUSTRALIA, TASMANIA. ETC.   BEING A VERY ADAPTABLE AND VERSATILE MEDIUM, IT CAN BE USED PRIMARILY FOR DRAWING AS WELL AS PAINTING,OR BOTH OF COURSE.

EXCELLENT TO SEE THE ENTHUSIASM SHOWN THIS YEAR ALONE, AND SOME REALLY COMPETENT WORK BEING PRODUCED!

16 PARTICIPANTS AT DONCASTER-VIC PASTEL SOCIETY

17 PARTICIPANTS AT LAUNCESTON-MOSTLY PLEIN AIR-AT LEONI DUFF'S STUDIO AND IN TASMANIA'S GREAT LANDSCAPE   

ARCHIVAL WORKS IN OIL---and PASTEL

*Many of these paintings,,especially the landscapes, were painted on location in the eighties and nineties--2000's ,while others were  developed in the studio from research studies [and the odd photograph to assist detail when needed.] 

[*sizes vary,  although many  were about 60 x 90 cm, or two feet by three in imperial measurement.  As I prefer working "En Plein Air" , the larger size offered more freedom and rhythm, however the type of day and weather was and still is,-- a determining factor!

*The Pastels  have been completed using a suitably  textured  paper-"colourfix" by A.S. on a warm dark or mid-tone ground on 300GSM. [silk-screened primer]

Larger works were completed using pastel primer on

a matt board.      Some have been worked on location,others in the studio.Morning at Warrock-Pastel 45 x 66 cm Painted 2002
