He enjoys the plein air challenge of “working fast, in all weathers, in front of the subject.

Bold & Expressive: Mixed Media From Life Art Workshop with Denis Clarke

Mixed Media Art Workshop in Norwich

Australian artist, Denis Clarke, is in Norwich for Paint Out‘s art competition and events the week of 19-23 October. Before hitting the streets of Norwich with over 40 other artists and some 80 artists on Thursday at the mass Mousehold Heath ‘paint out’ he will be delivering an art workshop on Monday 19 October. Open to artists of all abilities, why not get enthused and inspired by this rare opportunity to be taught by a visiting experienced artist and art teacher.

Bold and Expressive: Mixed Media From Life

The workshop is titled “Bold and Expressive: Mixed Media From Life” and is an introduction to some diversions from habitual ways we look and draw from a subject. Methods might be challenging to get your thinking more attuned to a practice of learning to see form and space using drawing media as well as paint. Expressive use of mark and gesture will be encouraged.

Matisse proclaimed that to see things fresh and as if for the first time, “as if with the eye of a child” was a constant effort. Drawing is an ongoing dialogue in which you are being encouraged to suspend disbelief so as to encourage all the senses to respond. The sense of touch or imagined sense of touch seems to be as present in all good drawing as the sense of sight. Clumsiness and refinement, accident and control, may interchange in the process.

The otherness or impact of nature seems to be our ongoing goal to a realization of a meaningful statement in a mix of drawing media as well as paint.

Denis is renowned for devising and delivering innovative master class courses linking observational drawing to creative and experimental methods with drawing and mixed media. This is a rare opportunity to learn from an international artist and art teacher.

Richard’s artistic interests range from “rural landscape, architectural subjects and urban themes, to still life and the human figure.” He has appeared in International Artist magazine (Issue 86, 2012) in a feature piece “Master Painters of the World: UK Richard Bond” about his work, style and methods.

From his website, Richard writes:

“My watercolour paintings range from small ‘plein air’ works painted outdoors on location, to large-scale studio paintings, based on outdoor studies and sketches, photographs and other reference material. As a figurative painter I am captivated by the liquid beauty of the watercolour medium, its versatility, and the ability to say more with less. For all of my work, I use high-quality, permanent paints and acid-free, mould-made papers, or present-day versions of traditional handmade papers. I enjoy researching the methods and techniques of the great masters of 19th and 20th century British and American watercolour, and have always admired, and continue to be inspired by, the paintings of Cotman, Turner, Sargent and HB Brabazon in particular. For me, watercolour is an exciting, expressive and challenging medium, and I strive to maintain in my own work that sense of immediacy and directness which is the essence of the traditional art of watercolour painting.”
