Abstracted Botanicals in Acrylic | Beth Kennedy

Abstracted Botanicals in Acrylic | Beth Kennedy

We are excited to bring Beth Kennedy, a new artist to our studio!

What will I learn?

In this workshop Beth will show you warm up drawing exercises to help get the creative process flowing, then will follow botanical drawing studies and finally how to work these up on to a large mixed media painting on canvas. Large brushes will be used for washes, tiny brushes for detail and opaque areas of colour will be laid in too. The element of play and surprise results is an integral part of Beth’s art practice and working with mixed media and playing with these will be a part of this workshop, fun will be had with liquid watercolour, ink, gouache, watercolour and acrylic paint and paint markers.

Beth will show you how to create washes using mediums and how to manipulate these, blot off and work into them. Using pattern and how to incorporate this into the paintings will be taught also. This workshop is for all experience levels; Beth is a firm believer that drawing, and painting are skills that can be learnt by anyone. The creative process should be fun and enjoyable, this will mean a better end result too, and as such this will be a relaxed and friendly workshop where questions will be welcome and hopefully new friends made over plenty of cups of tea!

The focus will be to encourage and support everyone’s unique individuality in mark making to produce beautiful paintings to take away with them.

About Beth Kennedy

Beth Kennedy lives and works in Brisbane and has a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the Australian National University. She has held six solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions. Beth is represented by Greenhouse Interiors and Anthea Polson Art, her work has appeared in Australian House & Garden, Belle magazine and The Age’s Melbourne Magazine.
The essence of Beth’s paintings is the dynamics of patterning. Even at their most colourful, there is a quiet and enigmatic beauty to her work.
Pattern, colour and composition all work together to present a snippet of an emotional narrative in the floating worlds she creates. She works intuitively with colour, at times allowing it to flow across the canvas in washes, and at others using it in bold opaque area. Amongst this, wavering patterns move in and out of focus, eventually finding their place and adding depth and beauty to the paintings.
Each of Beth’s paintings is the result of a sustained process of transcription: from sketches, to watercolour, to paint on canvas.
