Watercolour Magic

Sketching & painting in watercolour

with Malcolm Carver

Cancelled until further notice

16 & 17 May 2020  -   From 9am till 4pm  Studio 1

Cost:  $200 BDAS Members &  $230 non members  

Watercolour magic intrigues us all, yet it is so easy to become so obsessed with detail, that you often labour too long in striving for perfection.

Capturing the essence, is often more exciting, nailing the magic spirit of a place with the least number of strokes, not more.

 

Simplifying detail in drawing and painting techniques helps learning to see light and shapes that will significantly improve your sketching and painting skills. Malcolm’s fresh and enlightened approach, is designed to ensure a more experimental direction in learning to see forms and shapes including an understanding of depth in perspective. The course also embraces photographic apps to assist in exploring and analysing images to simplify detail to an appropriate level.

 

Open to all, the course will involve studio and some plein air painting (weather permitting) to capture the images and spirit of parts of nearby Bowral. The emphasis will be on keeping a sketchbook of places, people and images, combined with digital photo references which will greatly assist your ability to capture the spirit of a place. 

 

Malcolm is an Artist and an Architect who is an Executive Member of Australian Watercolour Institute, Associate Member Royal Art Society, Member of Australian Institute of Architects & past President of the Ku-Ring-Gai Arts Society

Relief/Embossing & Intaglio Photopolymer Printmaking Workshop

with Dianne Longley

Cancelled until further notice

13 & 14 June 2020  -   From 10am till 5pm  Studio 3

Cost:  $250 BDAS Members &  $280 non members  

You are invited to attend a two-day workshop exploring the diversity of photopolymer plate printing with Dianne Longley. 

 

We will make A6 photopolymer plates, concentrating on embossing/relief plates on Saturday and then make A6 intaglio photopolymer plates on Sunday.  

Embossing/relief plates can be made using plants from the garden, lace fabrics, or paintings/drawings on drafting film using gouache or other opaque media. The plate is washed out in tap water, deeply. With dampened paper the embossing plate will be printed without ink initially, then with a transparent relief ink, followed by black ink. Different printing techniques will be demonstrated, through an etching press, and using a nipping or book press for printing onto Japanese paper. 

On Sunday we will make drawings on drafting film using pencils and/or fine pigment pens. Line and tone can be combined. Once you are happy with your drawing we will place it on the plate, expose the plate to UV light (sunlight or a UV exposure unit), wash the plate out in tap water, dry it, then post-expose it (in sunlight or the UV unit). The plate is then ready to print onto dampened paper.

Intaglio Photopolymer Printmaking workshop

with Dianne Longely

Cancelled until further notice

20 & 21 June 2020  -   From 10am till 5pm  Studio 3

Cost:  $250 BDAS Members &  $280 non members  

You are invited to attend a two-day workshop extending your skills in photopolymer (solarplate) printmaking with Dianne Longley.

 

This workshop is ideal for printmakers and printmaking students who have an understanding of photopolymer printmaking. This workshop will extend your skills in producing velvety blacks and subtle tonal areas on photopolymer intaglio prints. The emphasis of the workshop is on research and understanding the variables involved rather than producing finished prints. On Sunday we will also work with the chine collé technique using Japanese papers with liquid and powder methyl cellulose. 

 

You can make A5 or A6 photopolymer plates at the workshop. During the workshop you will make test exposures and then when you have the best exposure time, you will make your plates. 

For this workshop you can use tonal drawings or digital transparencies.

Your drawings can be produced with a broad tonal range using lithographic pencils and crayons, graphite pencils, pen and ink. Your drawings need to be made on drafting film or a more grainy film if you are using lithographic drawing materials. I am happy to supply film before the workshop so that you can bring some finished drawings to the workshop.

Your digital images or photographs can be printed to film before the workshop or during the workshop. I will discuss the different ways of printing film during the workshop. Bring to the workshop photopolymer plates and your printmaking papers. Bring printing inks and tarlatan if you have them.
