Workshop Outline

This painting workshop will explore paint application, composition, scale, mark making, and colour through looking at the portrait, landscape, still life, figure, and life drawing. Students will be encouraged to explore, find what excites them when creating, to then be able to develop one genre or explore more with Daniel’s guidance.

Dan has had numerous solo and group exhibitions and has been a finalist in a large number of high profile portrait prizes, including the Doug Moran Portraiture Prize and the Archibald.
