Streeton Style Mallee Landscape

Wednesday 7th June. 10am start.

Cost $20 + hall fee for members $35 for guests

When I look at Arthur Streeton’s work, I marvel at the beautiful light he has captured. (see example of Streeton’s work below)

Merrilyn Kemp will be demonstrating a technique she has learned, to try and capture that wonderful light, using a new range of Australian paint colours developed by Matisse.

Please bring a 40-50cm square canvas is possible (rectangle is ok shortest edge 40cm)

MASH will supply whisper blue paint and gesso for underpainting. This will be done on the day.

MASH will also be supplying the Aussie colours for everyone to share during the workshop including:

  • Australian sky blue
  • Australian sap green
  • Australian yellow green
  • Australian sienna
  • Australian blue gum

Please bring the following colours (if you have them).

  • Titanium white
  • Cadmium (warm) yellow
  • Cobalt blue (cooler blue than ultramarine)
  • Magenta light (or magenta as it can be lightened)
  • Raw umber or burnt umber
