Leading Edge Workshops are excited to host Eleanor Lowden for three wonderful days this October: Friday, October 20 to Sunday October 22.
Eleanor is both fascinated and inspired by people. "My paintings would herald the day and honour those simple moments that we all take for granted: walking the dog, shopping, eating, holding hands, talking on the phone, texting. I love to watch crowds of people travelling in different directions, each with their own story and body language, lost in their own thoughts, being in close proximity to people and never connecting - or perhaps connecting. This is what I find fascinating and inspiring."
Eleanor paints figures as well as landscapes in acrylic and this workshop will focus on how she combines the two, creating a landscape with figures in it. Her work is multi-layered. Eleanor will show you how she builds up her layers of paint so that the colors glow and create texture. Over the three day workshop Eleanor will do a demo painting each day. She will explore the landscape and the figure and finally bring the figure into the landscape. She will take you through her tools, her palette, the way she develops her design, her sketch, and the underpainting and finally the layers she paints to complete the painting. She will also spend time discussing the elements of design as well as the language of paint.
