Floribunda 2 Online – Colour and Gesture Pre-recorded
Once registered, you can view the films as often as you like and for as long as you need. This pre-recorded course was filmed as 3 days of expressive painting inspired by the abundance and beauty of Spring flowers. The focus for finding a language for our paintings will be through colour and gesture. Working on a series of between 6 – 9 small paintings over the 3 days we will celebrate the colour, the ordered chaos and the scent and joy of the subject. Gathering armfuls of colours and marks from the inspiration of the flowers to work with we will compose them by layering, selecting, editing, simplifying and inventing. The paintings will be an exploration into how to capture the life, light, delicacy and poetry of the subject. In the end the paintings themselves will become the subject. This course is edited from the live Floribunda 2, delivered in April 2021. It is split into 2 films per day, each approximately up to an hour long. There is no feedback given.
"There is always so much to digest and learn over the course. I did enjoy your exercises very much and it all made so much sense! There is no pressure when doing exercises, [so] one is more relaxed, looser and more playful. It was Floribunda from a different angle - and I very much enjoyed it."
