Year 12 students visited the workshop of ‘Ian Murphy’, a British based professional Artist who focuses on painting large scale architectural work. On the first day they learnt how to create textural backgrounds using a variety of materials such as scrim, tissue paper, newspaper and even sandpaper. On the second day they focused on completing tone and shade, giving their work form and scale. All the students thoroughly enjoyed their workshop and have come back to classroom brimming with ideas of how they can incorporate these techniques into their own work.
