Robyn is well known as a prominent Australian wilderness landscape and seascape painter of contemporary realism who started painting in the early 70’s – when traditional art was really taking off and Sydney Galleries were frequent and successful. Most of what she  has learned has been  learned from the observation of nature and constant hard work – being a self realised artist. Having spent many years painting en plein-air she then graduated to studio work and subjects requiring  more time and reference while still retaining the Alla-Prima technique. (Direct painting, wet-in-wet).

 

 Her work can be seen by going to her website  http://robyncollier.com.au/

 

This is a full day workshop where Robyn will demonstrate how to paint waves and ocean using oils.

 

This workshop is a turp FREE workshop.

 

Coffees, teas and light lunch are included

 Refund Policy

As a rule ticket is non-refundable unless event is cancelled by organizer due to any reason including not reaching minimum number.

In case due to any unforseen circumstances workshop needs to be moved to another day by organizer/artist at short notice, you will be contacted and asked whether you will be available on that day. If not a full refund will be given.

In case that you will not be able to attend because of an unforseen circumstances close to the workshop date a 75% refund will be given only if a replacement is found.

 

 

Here is a list of suggested materials by the artist:

 

  • 1 x 12”x16” - ( 31 x 41cm) canvas board. You can use larger if you think you can get
    through the painting in the time. Use good quality canvas or give your board a single coat
    with a good primer. Cheap boards make the job of painting a lot harder as the paint does not
    flow on very well and you will find yourself filling in a lot of little holes.

 

  • BRUSHES – A good selection of reasonable quality long, FLAT SQUARE bristle brushes –
    say some small, medium and large. A stiff synthetic round 0 and 2. (Art Basics are good).
    PLEASE DO NOT BRING WORN-OUT BRUSHES OR ONES GUNKED UP AT THE FERRULE!

 

  • COLOURS - Artist quality where possible. I don’t mind which brand you use.
    Personally, I use Art Spectrum.
    REDS Pilbara Red. (A/S)
    GREENS Viridian
    BLUES Manganese Blue – Blue Black (W/N) – Ultramarine Blue
    YELLOWS Yellow Ochre - Australian Red Gold
    BROWNS Burnt Sienna
    WHITE Titanium White . (Make sure it is not old and stiff.)

 

  • OTHER ITEMS
    Standing or table Easel.
    Baby Oil for washing brushes ONLY– in a sealed jar.
    PLEASE DO NOT BRING MINERAL TURPS OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT.
    GAMSOL solvent for medium (thinning paint) (This is the most environmentally safe
    solvent to use as a painting medium). You will only need a small amount depending on
    your canvas.
    A Good-sized palette. You will need plenty of room for mixing colours. Perspex is good.
    Double Dipper or Single Dipper for medium.
    Palette knife for mixing colours. (triangle shaped flexible one – medium sized)
    Your normal painting kit including plenty of rags and paper towel.
    Kneadable Putty rubber – thin willow charcoal if you would like to try my method of
    drawing in.
    Baby wipes are useful.
