Look at the landscape with new eyes. We will work in acrylics and drawing media. Our focus will be to look at ways of describing the landscape in an expressive manner using collage as a base. You will make your own collage using mono printing and works on paper done in the landscape. You will be encouraged to work expressively using loose brushstrokes.

Materials list

Paints
Bring the paints you have, preferably artist grade acrylics as the results are so much better. I use Atelier Interactives and Matisse structure and flow. I also use sample pots of house paint for under colour. If you can only get student acrylics choose the ones which are thicker (Chroma A2 is a good one)

If you are a beginner you can get away with mixing red, blue and yellow with white and black to get most colours.

We will be using a limited palette but it’s nice to use secondary colours as a primary too.

  • Warm red (tomato )pyrrole red or cadmium red medium

  • Cool red (crimson) – alizarin crimson or naphthol crimson

  • Warm yellow (sun) – cad yellow medium

  • Cool yellow (lemon) – arylamide yellow light or cadmium yellow light or lemon yellow

  • Warm blue (royal) – ultramarine blue

  • Cool blue (Green blue) – cerulean or phthalo or cobalt

  • Titanium white

  • Black

  • Some transparent coloursAustralian Sienna, transparent red oxide, phthalo blue, transparent umber are good

Canvas

  • 1 smaller canvas: 30×30, 40 x40, 30x40cm

  • 1 larger canvas: 60×60 (approx) or any other size and orientation you like.

  • NB: If you are a beginner, no bigger than 60×60

Or

  • A2 cardboard sheets – neutral or white as an alternative to canvas

Paper

  • A3 or larger cartridge paper (drawing paper) – 10 sheets or more. Not too thick as this will be used for collage. (Kmart children’s easel pad is perfect!)

Gesso

White (or cheap white paint). This is used to blend colours. It is translucent white, so it creates a soft effect.

Other

  • Acrylic medium or PVA glue for sticking collage.

  • Charcoal

  • Candle

  • Black, white or neutral tissue paper.

  • Black ink and 2 coloured inks close on the colour wheel. Eg: pink and orange

  • Palette: tile, plastic smooth white plate or disposable palette. It needs to have a large flat area

  • Water spray bottle

About the tutor

Ann Rayment lives in Dolphin Point NSW. She loves working with mixed media and enjoys the looseness and unpredictability of marks, experimenting with collage and colour in layers. She explores the subject through making direct responses with mediums such as ink, pastel, charcoal and acrylic paint. Her brush strokes are bold and energetic. Ann has held workshops all over Australia and it is her passion to pass on her knowledge to other artists. She believes everyone can paint – it’s all about having the right mindset. Have fun with the process and don’t have high expectations of the product.
