Lorraine Brown loves the qualities of watercolour as a painting medium, including its ability to create unique and unexpected results, its risk and surprise.
defines her vivid works as “expressive impressions” ---- a blend of realism and
abstraction ---- and is constantly searching for new ways to use the medium to new effect.
Lorraine resides in Adelaide, where she paints most days. Her paintings are held in private and corporate collections in Australia and overseas.
A journey of exploration in the use of oils whilst developing an understanding of the human head. During this workshop, you will use supplied images to focus on fundamental proportions and the structure of the head. This will be combined with the principles of good observation which are the prerequisites for producing convincing portraits.
This course will cater for all skill levels and Trevor’s teaching approach aligns with this.

Work by Graham Smith
In this workshop you will produce an acrylic painting on canvas.
The goal is to complete a finished painting in one day, so it is recommended that the canvas you use is not very large.
If, however, you are confident and work fast, you may wish to bring along two relatively small canvases to work on. The tutor will supply hair dryers to enable you to dry the work and therefore enable you work quickly.
