Creative Subtractive Inks Workshop   - with artist: Phil Reynolds who studied Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University, graduating in 1997 and has since pursued a career as an artist. He has been exhibiting his work in contemporary galleries throughout the North of England as well as London and Bristol affordable art fairs. Phil's work explores the ground between abstraction and figuration where forms emerge from a fluid use of acrylic paint. His work is both instinctive and keenly observed bringing together raw marks with more mediated responses.

During this workshop we will look at creative and experimental ways of using watercolour. Long has watercolour lived in the shadow of oil paints but the possibilities of this media are enormous. We will look at how to be fast and loose with wet in wet to adding media that will give unusual and inspiring effects. Also how to work into the wetness at varying times and density of pigment to show how this medium can be controlled differently. Subjects to look at will be still life, landscape and abstract all within the day’s workshop. Artsists to look at include . Turner, Klee and Helen Frankethaler.
