Gerald is a renowned West Australian landscape and abstract painter working with oils, acrylic and pastels.
The Workshop:
The aim of the workshop is to paint an Acrylic Impressionist style landscape using a limited palette. Working from a photo reference supplied, we will make some slight adjustments to the composition.
Using a fan tail brush to block in a tonal wash, then developing the painting with a Painting Knife, Primary Colours and White.
Suggested equipment list: 
1. Canvas Board approx. 40 x 30 cm
2. Colours: Ultramarine Blue - Alizarin Crimson - Cadmium Yellow & White
3. Fan Tail Brush
4. Painting Knife
5. Palette 
6. Tissues for keeping Knife clean during colour mixing.
Gerald will provide a photo reference of a landscape but there will be some changes to it by adding a distant hill.  It would be preferable if everyone did the same exercise, as it would be easier to keep track of everyone's progress.
