‘Head in the Clouds’ Practical painting workshop with Sara Dudman RWA.
Practical painting workshop with Sara Dudman RWA.
Thursday 24th November at CICCIC at 2.30pm in the afternoon.
Capturing the transience, fleeting moments and subtle nuances of the sky has held a fascination for artists across the ages. Using her characteristically gestural approach, Sara will demonstrate how to use paint with expression to evoke the essence of the sky. Working from video footage of clouds skudding across the sky, recorded by Sara while she was working in Northumberland, participants will be encouraged to explore mark-making using a range of tools for paint application. This will be a relaxed and informal practical session, enabling everyone to test their own creative and expressive potential
Canvases, paints and brushes will be provided at a cost of £5 per person – please confirm participation asap.

My practice is primarily painting and drawing based, often incorporating video as a source. I am predominantly concerned with human interactions and interventions in the environment. My work is located within the tradition of landscape, with references to historical and contemporary concerns of painting, mark-making and gesture. I begin with spending time with my subject, collecting and interpreting visual information using a combination of video and traditional recording methods. Small-scale and intimate or monumental and timeless, my gestural works are created in layers, alternately recording and expressing the substance and essence of the subject and its environment.
