Workshop Outline

This painting workshop will explore the fun, free flowing technique of Alla Prima, a ‘wet on wet’ oil painting technique. Participants will be guided in a relaxed environment to explore mark making and brush techniques and enjoy the instant gratification of finished works created in a single sitting.

This is a fun, hands-on introduction to oil painting, focussing on the no fuss approach that the Alla Prima technique lends itself to. Artist Lauren Jones will guide you through the basics of using oils and share her impressionistic, free flowing and fast approach to creating vibrant and dynamic still life paintings. Be prepared to get messy and loosen up with some gestural painting exercises and explore the genre of still life through new arrangements and themes each day. Participants will learn how to represent colour, light, tone and form to create atmosphere in finished artworks. Discover fresh ways of seeing compositions and still life scenes within a relaxed environment. Over this five day workshop participants will take home many finished artworks.

Lauren Jones is a visual artist based on the Sunshine Coast. Working primarily in oils, her feminine portraits and still life scenes speak of moments captured in time. Lauren’s works, executed with bold and immediate brushstrokes, are evocative and impressionistic. Her art exquisitely showcases the materiality of paint and celebrates the process of painting.

Born in 1989 in Queensland, Jones earned a Bachelor
of Arts (Creative Literature) from the Sunshine Coast University in 2009, and in 2012, a Bachelor of Fine
Art (Painting) from Monash University. Lauren is represented by Michael Reid Northern Beaches – Sydney, NSW, Studio Gallery Group, Melbourne, Vic and CLO Studios in Noosa, Qld. Currently Jones works from her home studio in the Noosa Hinterland, Queensland.
