Richard Chamerski – Plein Air To Studio
Richard Chamerski is a professional artist with more than 30 years experience. Working in the Macedon Ranges in Victoria Richard takes us first out on location where he paints a plein air sketch of the Camels Hump. Using his pochade box Richard demonstrates how he quickly gathers the information he needs to go back to the studio to complete the painting. Later in the studio Richard walks us through his equipment and the process he goes through to complete the painting. Painting in a style reminiscent of the Heidelberg School of Impressionists Richard completes a terrific painting of the Camels Hump working from Plein Air to Studio.
Cape Otway Lighthouse
The Cape Otway Lightstation is a historic location on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria and played a key role to the development of Victoria in the mid 1800’s during the Gold boom. Anyone who has been down the Great Ocean Road has probably stopped in to the lighthouse for a visit. In a recent episode of ‘Yes You Can Paint’ TV show we dropped into the lighthouse and this painting is the result. It is a great painting for beginners and can be complete in both oils or acrylics. This painting has been taught at a number of our art classes and our students really loved completing it.
