“the big picture idea is that we are going to paint Country, we are going to go beyond what we see with our eyes and try and find its spirit, the essence of place” Jacob Nash.
The masterclass will focus on how to find the spirit or essence of landscape and create an authentic response to Country.
The group will then discuss how to translate this to large-scale painting to reflect this response.
