Workshop with Roger Dellar ROI PS RI
A day of plein air painting with Roger Dellar ROI RI PS bring your Oils and come and paint St James Park, famous for its impressive flower beds around Buckingham Palace and its large lake with a fountain and resident Pelicans.
Roger Dellar's enjoyment of painting is the process rather than the end result. It is about finding the subject and letting it emerge. He enjoys the surface created, the brushwork and the differences between lean & fat paint. He wants the painting to read from a distance as reality, but close up to be a series of marks. With composition, he likes this to emerge by looking for the spatial qualities of one shape creating an imbalance, and then being resolved by another. He likes to work with a limited palette adding a few brights for emphasis.
Bring along your own drawing and paintings materials.
Bring a packed lunch, or pop out to one of the cafes or shops in the local area.
