TWO NEW ORCHARD GARDEN PAINTING WORKSHOPS 

SUNDAY 25 OCTOBER & WEDNESDAY 11 NOVEMBER

The Orchard Garden was first established in 1948 by Arthur & Grace Mitchell to grow produce for the family and their pastry shop business. Today still in the family the garden is maintained by Jenni & Mervyn for food, beauty and a pleasant way of life.

The workshop will commence with a demonstration by Jenni Mitchell followed by one to one tuition around the garden. The large garden has plenty of corners to set up an easel or drawing board in comfort.

The focus is to capture on paper or canvas the essence of the garden quickly using your chosen materials. You will be shown how to view the subject using your Artists’ Eye.

These workshops are suitable for all student levels including beginners & experienced artists who like to work with nature in a colourful garden setting.

* Bring your favourite painting materials: oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolour, pencil or pastels. Lunch and refreshments provided.

*basic art materials available for purchase at gallery.

Cost $155.00 each or $285 for two workshops. includes home cooked lunch and refreshments.

This workshop is designed to help prepare the artist for a ‘day out’ sketching. You will take just enough materials for easy management and carrying in the field. No need to bring easels.

Bring what you can easily carry – think visiting a foreign country, a train trip, a visit to the beach, city or landscape and plan to come home with some field sketches to work up in the studio, or not.

Suggested materials include – pencils, pen and ink, watercolour and pastels. You will need a sketchbook or drawing board with paper cut to size and fixative if using pastel.

Watercolour, gouache and ink artists will need a bag that will carry a palette, brushes, water container, rag or paper towel and water. This may include a bottle of drinking water that can be refilled from a tap in the park.

You may like to simply come with a pad and pencil. Suggested black led pencils include a variety of sizes from H to 6B, ie: hard and soft black lead pencils. Coloured pencils are also useful including watercolour pencils. You may like to use charcoal.

Wet ones are useful for cleaning hands in the field. You may like to bring a cushion, light blanket or something to sit on if planning to work on the ground. There will be seats throughout the gardens – but you may need to be quick to secure a spot.

It is a public holiday and if the sun is shining the gardens will have more visitors. This can add to the subject material – and the need to sketch quickly.

Bring enough paper and materials to last the day. There will be panoramic subjects to paint and exquisite close up work to do. The choice will be up to you.

Bring a hat.

I will give a demonstration of a variety of subjects in different mediums and then help each student as a one on one with your chosen subject.
