Paint Where We Live with Kevin McKay

blue gate

We live in an amazing city where the built and natural environment compete and compliment each other and where the subject for painting can be found in your back yard, down the street, or on a short journey to a park or harbour side location. Kevin McKay will help you develop your painting skills with reference to the intimate and public places you know and are waiting to be discovered. This course provides foundational instruction in the studio where you will learn how to construct a painting from photo reference.

You will also learn how to make quick studies within the landscape with fun excursions to paint local features of the Eastern Suburbs. Lessons will cover how to structure a composition with correct proportion and perspective, with demonstrations on colour mixing, structuring paint layers and capturing the fleeting effects of light. This course will benefit the novice as well as those with previous painting experience.

Term 3 commences Tuesday 23 July 2019
