Balmoral and Beyond

Our latest workshop was Balmoral and Beyond with The Workshop Art Centre, in Willoughby.

This was a two-day holiday Workshop with the first morning planned for en Plein Air painting focusing on drawing and painting at Balmoral Beach Mosman.  And the afternoon and following day developing drawings into paintings.

Unfortunately this time torrential rain, but hey! What’s a bit of rain for intrepid artists? Where there’s a will, there’s a way and some very quick sketches, quite a few photos and we were back to the warm dry studio at the Workshop Arts Centre.


Some wonderful work was produced by everyone including taking advantage of those wonderful cloudy skies.

Beginning the journey

Sandra will take you on a journey from your first initial sketches to how to tackle transferring them to the canvas. Weather permitting we will sketch outdoors for the first hour before setting up to paint more reflectively from our drawing. You will be taken through the steps of composition, style, underpainting, and layering towards the final painting.
