RONNIE IRELAND ZOOM LECTURES

The “Take 6 series of talks takes a theme and then examines how artists from different times and places haveworked with that theme. ‘Take 6 LAND includes Claude, Constable, Hokusai, Eardley and Goldsworthy, ‘Take 6MUSIC ‘includes Kandiinsky, Picasso, Pollock, Memling, Mondrian and many more. The differences and parallelsare fascinating.

 

ALL DAY WORKSHOP with Keith Morton

Keith will be bringing Burnt Umber to use to colour the paper members bring.

This list is for opaque media only. Anyone using pastels or water colour will be more expert than

Keith in this media. This is the list of materials when painting with an opaque medium.

if you’d prefer to stick to your own tried and trusted paints and brushes, that won’t be a problem.

Paints: Three ‘warm’ colours and three ‘cool’: Titanium White, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Ultramarine Blue, Prussian Blue.

Brushes:  Keith does most painting with three brushes, (sizes are approximate, not particular):15 mm flat, 9 mm flat, 3 mm round.

Support:  Keith favoured support is Windsor & Newton acrylic paper from a 20” x 16” (508 mm x

406 mm) pad which is slightly heavier weight than Daler Rowney and so doesn’t need stretching

(thinner paper will need stretching). Canvas board is fine too, if members already have some.

 

-The Hall will be open from 9.45am, and members are required to wear masks when entering, and when moving around the hall. You can remove your mask when sitting at your table.

-The session will end at 1pm.

-Hand sanitizer will be available on arrival.

-Members (who are able) will have to get their own table and chair from the store, and be responsible for returning both at the end of the session. You are also responsible for clearing up after yourself and cleaning the floor are around where you were working.

-The kitchen will be open for refreshments but you are required to bring your own cup.

-You will need to bring your own reference material to the sessions unless otherwise stated.

 

-We would like to maintain the “no Covid conversations” rule on Tuesday mornings, as we did during our Zoom sessions over the last eighteen months.
