Revealing Rothko Colour Mixing Workshop with Susanna Bailey

SATURDAY 1ST JULY

10am - 4pm

£60 All abilities welcome.

Revealing Rothko - Painting Workshop with Susanna Bailey

This course is not about how to reproduce a painting that looks like a Rothko, it is about identifying the colours and methods that he developed in order to create your own image. If you admire the work of Rothko and are an artist yourself (beginner or more experienced) this is the workshop for you. Start the day with an introduction to the life and work of Mark Rothko, exhibiting at the Abstract Expressionism exhibition at The Royal Academy, until 2nd January. Susie will guide you in placing complimentary colours next to each other, and help you identify the 'colour gem'. You will also look at resonant greys created from the earth palette.

After a quick bite to eat for lunch (don't forget to bring a packed lunch!) you will explore cool and warm colours and learn how to create a range of atmospheric effects. The afternoon will conclude with a constructive review and a plan of action for independent projects. This is a fun, exploratory day in light and spacious Studio One, with access to the treasure trove of art supplies in the shop next door. Susie and all the expert staff at Pegasus are on hand to advise you on the best products and access to the artistic community at Pegasus Art.

"There must be a clear preoccupation with death, tragic art, romantic art. Sensuality. Tension. Irony - the self effacement and examination by which a man for an instant can go on to something else. Wit and play. The ephemeral and chance. Hope - 10% to make the tragic concept more endurable. I measure these ingredients very carefully when I paint a picture." Part of an address given by Rothko at the Pratt Institute in 1958.

We can advise what equipment to bring on booking.

Whether you are a total beginner or have a bit of experience under your belt, this course will start from the beginning and set a solid foundation for future practice.

Susie will share her Top Tips for lifting out mistakes, developing shadow and the importance of leaving dry paper to act as a contrasting white. You will have the choice of creating a simple landscape, using photographs from Susie's collection - alternatively, please bring your own - or working for a still life which will be set up in Studio One. The aim of the day is to leave with a painting you can be proud of, and have the confidence to begin a journey of painting which will give you much pleasure in years to come. Susie and all the expert staff at Pegasus are on hand to advise the best products to use and purchase from the lovely shop next door to the studio.

Which colours to use on your palette, how to mix and gain insight and knowledge into using oils in a positive and confident manner - the methodology and the process.

You will have the luxury of three days with Max Hale, award winning artist and very experienced teacher. He will share with you his love for this medium and how to use it without fear. In turn you can quiz him about all the tips and tricks that will turn you into a confident oil painter.
