Grampian Brushes

In September 2020, I will be heading up to Halls Gap in the Grampians to take part in Grampian Brushes. This annual workshop program for painters and print makers provides an opportunity for participation in two, four or six days workshops with some of Australia's best artists and tutors for introduction level to experienced artists.

Set in Halls Gap in the stunning Grampians National Part (western Victoria). Grampian Brushes is a project of Grampian Arts, a not for profit organisation that strives to provide opportunities for artists to extend their skills and showcase their work.

I will be teaching a two-day workshop called Landscapes in Acrylic and a four-day workshop called Seascapes in Acrylic.


Celebrate the art of landscape painting in acrylic. Creating an Australian landscape palette and by mixing and matching any colour. Explore different brushstrokes, palette knife and techniques, integrated with some drawing, as all good painters must first learn how to draw. A focus will be on perception, dramatic clouds and skies through a technique called scumbling. Intermediate level.


Create calm and moody seascapes using a variety of painting techniques. Explore different brushstrokes and a colour palette for seascape painting. Learn to mix colours and create mood through the way you apply the paint. Discover palette knife painting and how to create texture, waves and rough seas. We will look at beaches and how to achieve the perception of space. Intermediate level.
