A Masterclass in Watercolour
September 27 - October 3 2020
Big Sky Art will host Joseph Zbukvic’s FIRST EVER Residential Painting course in the UK next year. It will be an absolute delight to welcome ‘JZ’ to The White House in North Norfolk where he will be giving a six night/five day workshop from September 27th – October 3rd 2020. Born in Croatia, Joseph has been based in Melbourne, Australia and we are extremely fortunate that he is including us in one of his infrequent European tours.
Joseph needs no introduction to watercolourists the world over – highly regarded as a leading master in this medium, he is one of the most renowned artists of our time, and his workshops are quite simply legendary. His impressive achievements and enormous success are due to his ability to transform any subject into visual poetic language.
Covering an infinite variety of subjects, Joseph’s sensitive, lyrical and atmospheric paintings have captivated private collectors and galleries from all around the world. In his own words: " I try to achieve a balance of harmony between tonal values, design, colour and mood that will visually evoke the emotions between the viewer and the painting. Watercolour, with its subtle and gentle effects is a perfect medium to achieve this."
Joseph’s teaching style is mesmeric, and his easy manner and sense of humour disguise a wonderful and inspiring teacher. A strong believer in the benefits of working ‘en plein air’, he is looking forward to painting in the stunning and varied locations in the vicinity of The White House. Rural landscapes and seascapes, coastal villages and Georgian architecture abound, and he may be also be tempted to take as his subjects the thoroughbred event horses which are stabled nearby. In the event of bad weather, his workshops will take place in our large, airy and well equipped studio.
This is truly a unique opportunity not to be missed and anyone interested in attending this course should register their interest as soon as possible since a maximum of 18 students can be accommodated.
