Artist: YVONNE MORELL
Dates: 22nd and 23rd of May
Cost: Fr. 300.- all materials included (except canvas)
I am Swiss German living next to lake Geneva. Art is my passion. I love to get up, have my head spinning with projects, images and colors, to have a cup of tea and dash off to my studio. My inspirations come mostly from everyday life. People, towns, object whatever catches my attention. It is so rewarding to have it come alive on my canvas..like meeting a new friend. I exhibit my paintings regularly.
I also love to share the passion of creating. The creative communities, locally and online makes the journey so much richer…what would life be without human connections and friendships. I hope to welcome you in my studio.
about the Workshop
My workprocess besides the technical part has a lot to do with a particular philosophy when it comes to painting. There are so many rules everywhere..if I can not be free on my canvas then where can I…
We will be working on that mindset and I am also happy to share with you one of my working process that I have developped over time as well as my source of inspiration. I will explane the different possibilities of preparing the canvas, painting with a paintbrush and palette knife in one painting. We will work with a gelliplate to create collage paper and go on an adventure of inventing our animal friends and whatever surrounds them. It is all about letting your imagination go, allow some crazy ideas take place on your canvas and most of all have a lot of fun!
