Learning to Paint like Gwen John (April 20th)


With Edwin Moreton

This is a one day course on:
Saturday, April 20th,
10.00 – 16.00 

Artist Gwen John is famous for her intimate portraits of women, still-life compositions, and tranquil light-filled interiors. Her unique style of painting utilises a limited colour palette of rosy pinks, sombre browns and greys, chalky whites, moody shades of indigo blue, and the occasional splash of red or yellow.

Carefully structured using brush strokes of oil impasto, her paintings feature a rich and lively surface of tonal harmony through colour! Her approach uses colour and tone to create compositions similar to the tonal harmonies found in music. 

In this one-day workshop, you will experiment with Gwen John’s preferred colour palette, using oil paints to create harmonious compositions similar to harmonious portraits, still-life compositions, or interiors.

Full instruction and guidance will be provided throughout the day.

All art materials will be provided along with photographic and other resources to aid and inspire your artistic productions.
