This workshop was held on 11th and 12th October.
This was Regina’s 5th pastel workshop at Albury Wodonga Artists Society. We quickly became friends, and I was impressed with her workmanship as a teacher. There was quite a lot of discussion in the room about the variety of the images even though we were almost all working the same topic. She was comfortable that we were different people, that the images we produced reflected our own personality, and showed the different techniques each of us brought to the room.
Regina moved around the room spending time with each person, and redirected where necessary, and through the process of having all of us with easels against the wall was able to see around us to the image we were creating.
Instruction was given first for each section then we did our version before she moved onto the next section, -sky, distant landscape, central landscape, feature and foreground. The feature was a tree in one picture, and a stream in the other.
The atmosphere in the room was friendly and businesslike in a good mix. We all got opportunities to move around to see each other’s work.
Regina stayed with me and we got a chance to do a photo-shoot of the river, and to see the orchid show. Dinner was at Baan Sahib Jai Thai restaurant on Saturday night and 6 of us shared a meal with Regina.
It worked well too, to have Regina open our exhibition on the Friday evening.
