Painting like….

Corrie after Shierenberg

Katerina after Shierenberg

Louisa after Gale

Sukhada after Kelly b

…..Tai-Shan Schierenberg, Diarmuid Kelly and Anne Gale.

Saturday group were busy today painting these copies of contemporary portraits.

Scheirenberg’s fluid, buttery, criss-crossing brushstrokes present Corrie and Katerina the challenge of more paint on the brush that they are used to.

Anne Gale with her broken dot dot dash style reminds me of Gwen John in terms of colour and muted tones. Louisa has understood the layered, patient build up perfectly.

Then a contrast to the planar, flat style of Diarmuid Kelly, who models a third dimension from a deft use of tones. Sukhada’s mixing and matching of colour proved to be the essence of the task.

  1. Extremely fluid and expressive. I applaud the lack of black paint; the colours stand on their own.

  2. Terrific variety
