Here are ideas of what to paint at the sessions in January, but you are always very welcome to come along and paint whatever you want to.
Wednesday 4th 7-9pm – Viva Magenta!
Worldwide colour company Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2023 is Viva Magenta. It’s a rich, deep, red colour similar to Alizarin Crimson, Perylene Red and Cadmium Red Deep in a watercolour palette. Use any medium to paint or draw any subject using this colour alone, or make it the most used colour in a picture. Draw or paint a flower, animal, landscape, an abstract, a person wearing magenta clothing, a car, absolutely anything at all!
Remember this colour, Viva Magenta, and try and use it in paintings through 2023.
Saturday 21st 10am – 3pm – Chinese New Year of the Rabbit
Sunday 22nd January is the official first day of the Chinese New Year of the Rabbit.
Draw or paint a wild or pet rabbit in the style of Chinese art using inks or another medium.
Expanding the rabbit family, called leporidae, to include hares gives us more choice of subjects. Draw or paint brown hares or arctic hares on their own or in their natural landscape in any season. Use any medium but why not try one you haven’t used for a while, such as collage or printing? Or if you received art supplies for Christmas bring them along to try.
If you can’t join us today to paint, please do pop in to say hello and pay your subs if you haven’t already done so online.
