Lorraine Lewitzka was born in 1952 and spent her adult life in the commercial art fields as a fashion and illustrative artist in black and white, after a childhood of constant observation, drawing and painting.
In 1986, with the encouragement of her husband, Terry, she began to explore the medium of water colours and four years later she was tutored in water colour in the US before continuing her art education at the Slade School of Art, London, where she discovered a new medium in oils in life painting.
On her return to Australia in 1991 Lorraine staged her first exhibition, with good success. Over the years Lorraine has taught and demonstrated interstate and has won many awards and prizes, several solo shows, judged on many occasions and continues to enjoy experimenting in watercolour, water mixable oils and acrylics.
She concentrates on traditional and contemporary still life, figurative subjects and commissioned portraits.
In this 2 day workshop Lorraine will cover traditional portrait painting in watercolour, as well as the wet in wet method.
Class Co-Ordinator Vicki Chapman will provide a materials list.
The gallery is heated and morning and afternoon tea will be provided, so please bring your own lunch.
We ask you arrive at least 20 minutes before the start time so set up doesn't encroach on valuable lesson time for yourself and fellow students.
