NEW „Japanese Gardens“ Workshop with Ana Paz
Dezember 12 @ 14:00 - 18:00CHF120 - CHF130
Create a Touch of Asia on Your Canvas
This new Workshop explores the dance between delicate forms of imaginary exotic Japanese gardens, fading images of old city’s walls and symbols from different cultures twisting and floating together in an alluring environment.
My purpose is to create a transcendental space, which is seductively familiar and yet nostalgically exotic, including fine, little details, until a perfect balance is emanating. Both, the embroilment and high detail, in conjunction with whispers of existing organic shapes induce an intimate experience of a new, ethereal realm.
I am inspired by surrealism, juxtaposing various images together to give a startling effect. The images are often abstract and have a dream-like quality about them. Being influenced by my traveling throughout old European villages and towns, I acquired a grand admiration towards items with many layers of faded colors, a style that is now called “shabby chic”.
In this course you will learn:
- Hot to paint different birds and/or Koi fishes
- How to paint lampions
- How to paint different types of flowers (insights about lights and shadows)
- Choosing the right colors
- Paint an abstract background – different techniques
- Insights about: color theory , texture, shapes, contrast, composition,
- Building complexity layer by layer
- Deciding when the painting is finished
This is not a typical „guided event“. There will be no step-by-step instructions for a particular painting. Instead, Ana will show you some techniques and tricks and encourage you to paint intuitively and freely.
