Contemporary Landscapes in Acrylic | Master class with Paul McCarthy

Come on an exciting and informed acrylic painting journey with Paul McCarthy as you learn to become loose and vibrant with your approach to painting landscapes. This master class is perfect for students not afraid to have a go at something wild yet controlled; free and yet composed. Your end result can be as abstract or as realistic as you wish, with emphasis during the day on design and composition, combined with colour control and harmonies. Paul McCarthy is known for his colourful and expressive paintings of rural and coastal scenes.

Represented by Sydney’s new Rochfort Gallery who describe “McCarthy's plein-air vision of the bush is one of energised colour. His landscapes combine Fauvism, Impressionism and Contemporary Abstraction. His exquisite colour combinations give his paintings an exotic flair, through which he captures and finds a whole new and dramatic light unique to his environment. ”

Bring your own reference material which may be photographs or drawings or even older paintings that you want to work from.

You can work on either canvas or board, choosing your own scale. Work big and aim to complete one large painting, or several studies in this master class.

Materials list

I use Matisse Derivan, but any artists quality paint is good:

Have plenty of white, plus a black

• Cadmium Yellow Light
• Yellow Deep
• Cadmium Orange
• Naphthol Scarlet
• Magenta (Quin Violet)
• Dioxazine Purple
• Ultramarine Blue
• Cobalt Blue
• Cobalt Teal
• Burnt Umber
• Extra favourites as you see fit!

A few extra colours always sneak in; bring whatever paints you normally use, and whatever bits and pieces you have.
I use flat or filbert bristle brushes in a range of sizes, a rigger could be handy.
DO NOT go out and buy anything special, your usual brushes will be fine.
I use stretched linen, but you can use stretched canvas or a solid timber ground to work on, just make sure they are primed and ready to work on prior to the class. As big as you can manage, or a couple to work on over the two days.

I also use:
Acrylic painting medium
Polymer gloss varnish
I use these during the painting process, it’s a personal choice, but worth trying for this workshop.

also

• Reference material – photos printed in colour to A4 preferred
• Palette
• Rags or paper towels
• Masking tape or bulldog clips
• Sketch book, paper and/or visual diary

  • Bring an apron or wear clothes you don’t mind getting paint on
