Explore ideas and methods of abstraction with artist Kieran Stiles.


Working on resistant gesso primed paper, learn how to create unusual surface textures with watercolour. This painting technique allows abstracted forms to emerge serendipitously, which may hint at the definition of shapes in a landscape. During the workshop we will be talking to Jaya Mansberger, and viewing her exhibition of paintings at The Old Fire Station. We will also be making links to similar painting methods, by referring to the ideas and techniques of Emil Nolde and Peter Doig. This type of representation allows for great freedom of expression, atmosphere and interpretation. 

All materials included, but please bring thick A3 cartridge paper, or smooth (‘hot pressed’) watercolour paper, and also a selection photographs of landscapes to work from.
