January 21 - Getting to an Abstract Painting with Didi Gadjanski

For many artists, the world of abstract painting is a mystery. How do you get from an image, a photograph or a drawing, to an abstract painting of the image.

Come and spend a day with Didi Gadjanski and learn how to construct an abstract painting, how to get from an image to something that has visual coherence and is not just a random mess of colour. The workshop will be directed to construction of an abstract painting, what are the elements that you need to understand so that the painting has visual appeal, what is the thinking process, what are the steps and so on.

There will be two demonstrations, both in acrylic, one based on a floral image and the other based on a landscape. However, the workshop is not restricted to painting with acrylics. There will be many opportunities for questions, as well as for painting, and critique and guidance from Didi.

Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time for set up. Tea/coffee and snacks will be complimentary but please bring your own lunch (optionally your own coffee cup).
