Golden Glow Workshop

Golden Glow is all about the final moments of a sunset or sunrise, when the colours are at their most extraordinary, particularly if you manage to witness an anti twilight arch.

This painting was inspired by a beautiful sunset at the back of my garden in July last year and will be one of the preparatory pieces to show people at my Golden Glow workshops.

When you view a sunset through foliage, the foliage picks up the oranges, yellows and reds of the sun, as shown here, and this is one aspect we will be looking at during the workshops. Exploring how it is not just about the sunset or sunrise and how the sun looks, but also the reaction on foliage in the garden, the field or the hedgerow, which gives us the extraordinary colours.

I will have a few photos available at the workshops, which you can use, but please bring your own images if possible, because you will have the personal experience of having witnessed these particular sunsets or sunrises. Cameras don't record the colours as we see them, so we need to find ways to accentuate what the camera has given us, alongside our memory and experience.

Call or email me to book.
