Painterly Saturday afternoons
Painterly afternoons on Saturdays is a new guided art activity at my studio-gallery.
Who and what is this activity suitable for?
It is for people of all ages who would like to try drawing or painting and experience a nice atmosphere, friendly company and plenty of inspiration.
It is for those who look for inspiration, or need some advice or help with their art. It is also for those who have stuck or don’t know how to get back to creation of art. We have sometimes started an artwork, but are not sure how to proceed. What to do next? What color to use? What other steps to take? When is the painting finished? How much of detail should be implemented? How to correct unsuccessfully painted spots? Why does the painting have no impact? I can suggest answers to these and other questions you are facing with your artistic endeavors.
It is for those who think they already depend too much on mobile devices and their computers. Take a break and employ your artistic side of the brain! While addiction to devices frequently stresses out even young kids, drawing and painting activities allow to calm down and recharge for any upcoming events which one may anticipate.
It is for those who feel lonely and upset and wish they had something nice to engage in during their leisure. It is not always the finished artwork which matters, sometimes the re-gained self-confidence and relaxed state of mind are much more important!
It is for those who feel bored, tired and exhausted. Why not to do something completely different? It’s always worth a try. You may be surprised how much pleasure is in simple artistic task.
It is for those who complain they never have their own time. Take your time and enjoy some quiet moment in the stormy life.
Materials for regular painting styles in watercolor and acrylic, as well as drawing paper and pencils are sold or offered (depends on size and type of materials), and anybody can take their own stuff, as well.
You could find out about new techniques or approaches, you would be able to refresh your artistic senses or learn something, too. It is not a regular class or workshop, but I am always offering tips, ideas, help and advice. I specialize in nature, still life, floral and scenery drawing and painting, and that is pretty much the skill I can share.
Real flowers, fruits and vegetables most often will not be available during winter months, however, there are usually some. References photos for scenery, floral and still life painting are offered if you would like to try this type of drawing and painting.
Abstract scenes or abstract art can be created easily, as well, and I will provide with additional materials.
