Landscape in Oils
16 Sep 2018 - 16 Sep 2018
Join Alexander McKenzie for an oil painting master class, creating a landscape from a photographic reference.
Alexander will help students extend their ideas from a photo into a finished studio painting. Students will work up a landscape painting in oil on the first day, and then on the second day learn about glazing, scumbling and varnishing. This class is designed for painters with experience in oil painting.
The tutor, Alexander McKenzie, is a six times Archibald finalist, has exhibited in the Wynne Prize six times as well as The Dobell Prize for Drawing at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. He has undertaken an Arthur Boyd Riversdale-Bundanon Residency in 1994, La Briche, Loire Valley Residency in France in 1995 and was recipient of the 1994 Inaugural Whiteley Scholarship, Julian Ashton Art School, Sydney. McKenzie has held many solo exhibitions, exhibits in Sydney, Melbourne and London and is represented by Martin Browne Contemporary, Sydney.
Alexander McKenzie's landscapes are evocative of mood, weather and the subconscious. His unique and hauntingly powerful visions of lakeside, garden and sunset scenes break away from a literal representation of landscape, towards a presentation of the imagined.
For McKenzie, the landscape is both a place for contemplation and a metaphor for a personal journey, exploring symbols, narratives and metaphors.
Cost: $110. Class takes place from 10am - 4pm on Sunday 16 September 2018.
Limited places available. Book early to avoid disappointment. Information on how to enrol in this class can be found on our Art Classes page.
