Janet Mayled ‘Still Life workshop’

08 May @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Still Life workshop:

Janet will talk about her work and methods and lead through her process to create a large scale still life painting using acrylic and pastel. I will bring a range of considered objects to create a still life on different levels to create a composition which will draw the viewer through the painting. Also considering colour theory and balance of colour to create a successful painting.
