Making light visible – Painting and Place, with Sarah Knox

18th March 2023 at 10:00am 4:00pm

This watercolour workshop is aimed at people with different levels of experience, and those who would welcome one-to-one support with a personal project. Working in watercolour, the workshop will appeal to artists who want to develop ideas and extend their creative approach.

We welcome back artist Sarah Knox who has run popular interactive watercolour workshops for OTR over the past few years. Sarah is an established professional artist and experienced art teacher based in Edinburgh, known for her evocative paintings of the Scottish landscape, capturing the atmosphere and the fall of light on a place using fluid gestural brushstrokes and subtle colour palettes.

The workshop will start with Sarah talking about her working process and influences. She will share her art journey and will explore colour and demonstrate watercolour techniques. Sarah enjoys a two-way dialogue and you will work individually, but will have a chance to discuss and share ideas.

Sarah will lead an experimental approach showing you how to develop your work by reimagining and rescaling ideas.

You will need to bring your sketchbook or loose-leaf studies (quick drawings, landscape sketches or visual sources such as photos or other landscape images) with to a view to developing these on the day. If we are blessed with good Spring weather en plein air sketching is an option in the Railway garden.

Sarah will share lots of tips and will provide a rich resource of materials but do please bring any favoured brushes, watercolour paint and watercolour papers.

Sarah’s artwork features annually at Pittenweem Arts Festival and Artwalk Porty. This year she was selected to represent Scotland in Fabriano en Aquarello 2022 in Bologna and to take part in the Union Gallery’s autumn exhibition to celebrate the selected watercolourists work.

This year Sarah had a successful solo exhibition There you feel free at Doubtfire Gallery from March-April 2022 and her work is currently featured in Doubtfire Gallery’s winter season exhibition Imaginary Traditions which runs until 25 February.
