From Dark to Light in Acrylics | David Hinchliffe

From Dark to Light in Acrylics | David Hinchliffe

About this workshop

Students will be shown how David works from darker background colours into light by painting the negative space to produce paintings that radiate.

Each participant will be guided by David in producing 2 paintings.

What will I learn?

You will learn the Hinchliffe technique - how to paint quickly and fluidly to produce paintings with energy and atmosphere.
David does not paint in a traditional way. This represents a new way of painting.

Special Instructions!

And you will need to arrive at least 15 minutes early to drop off your materials. Bring your charged phone or tablet of choice, because David will take you over to Newstead House (short walk) to start the day by taking photographs for the workshop. David will guide you in hints and tips in taking photos as subjects for paintings. You will use these photos in the workshop – it’s almost your own en plein air experience!

You’ll gather images in the field and return to the air-conditioned studio to paint in comfort. As the field trip will last around 30 minutes, please bring a hat and some water too.

  • 1. How much painting we actually got done on the weekend - nearly 4 paintings for me! 2, The ability to go at our own pace and ability to just sit back and what the tricks David applied for various paintings being undertaken by the participants. This gave be ideas and the inspiration to go back to my own and give them a try. 3. The encouragement of all participants towards me as a beginner...... Kevin P from Chelmer
  • Loved David's personality and his candid conversation about art and artists. Very entertaining and knowledgeable.He gave his all to tutoring and the particular technique of stating on black gesso canvas and working the negative allowed me to loosen up and explore a new way of working......Joan from Thornlands
