A Slow Journey in Still Life with Fast Results

Tuesday 14 May 2019 to Wednesday 15 May 2019

A two-day still life art class with popular tutor Charlotte Thodey.

The emphasis of this course will be on close-up observation of nature and light. You will cover the basics of drawing and arranging objects on the canvas setting out the painting according to tonal values and careful layering of colour to capture the light that reveals the fleshy essence of the fruit.

Includes lunches on the Foundation and Friends terrace.

Charlotte Thodey is renowned for her bold renderings of fruit and vegetables which she loves to recreate using shadow and light, with blemishes and lusciousness intact. Her sumptuous artworks demonstrate the freedom enjoyed by the still life artist.

Charlotte has exhibited her work for over 25 years, has produced a number of posters for the Botanic Gardens and Historic Houses Trust as well as devising and illustrating books. She regularly teaches classes at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney and exhibits her work throughout Australia and France.
