One day plein air landscape workshop
Join Mark Dober for a ONE DAY watercolour workshop on Sunday 16 April 2023 with a focus on water in the landscape. The workshop will be held at a landscape location close to Newstead: Picnic Point, Cairn Curran. (If the weather is poor on 16 April, the workshop will be rescheduled to 23 April).
Mark will demonstrate watercolour techniques and guide you step by step, increasingly giving individual attention to each artist’s work. Mark will show you how to look for a point of emphasis, how to create a composition and build your painting in stages, offering strategies working with changing light.
The workshop will end with a show and tell and wrap up of everyone’s work. This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience.
All materials provided: $20 materials fee to be paid to Mark at the workshop. You may like to bring a folding stool or chair.
About Mark Dober
Mark Dober is based in Castlemaine and is a leading Australian watercolourist. He makes his watercolours on site in the landscape, working flat and seated on the ground.
While Mark shows framed watercolours in commercial gallery shows, as in his recent Melbourne exhibition Wood: Rock: Wildflower at Alexandra Sasse Gallery, he is best known for his wall-sized watercolours shown on a regular basis at regional galleries around Australia. These works can be more than five metres long, and are shown pinned to the walls.
Mark’s most recent exhibition of large scaled watercolours was at Swan Hill Regional Gallery. The ABC did a video interview of Mark making work for this show.
