Julie Goldspink  —  watercolour

Julie is a gifted and experienced artist with extensive art training including a  - B.A in Visual arts and has a broad knowledge in art history, textiles, printmaking, painting and graphic arts. She teaches and exhibits in many parts of Australia and is now based on the Mornington Peninsula. As former director of the Everglades Fine Art Gallery in Port Macquarie, she gained appreciation for all forms of art and viewed the art world from a different perspective.

Lyn Mellady  -  pastel painting
Lyn is a trained teacher whose art took over her career. She works in both pastel and oil and her work is widely recognised and awarded.  In her workshops, DVDs and classes she explains all.    Her DVDs are designed to let you travel visually with her as she explains her thoughts and choices. You see the artistic processes that make the pastels work to create realistic paintings that have the density of an oil painting but the visual fresh surface that only pastel can give when handled correctly.

Video notes PDU No. 2
Watercolour canvas is suitable for artists wishing to present their watercolour paintings without glass.
It remains flexible and pigment may be moved more easily than on watercolour paper—suitable for a change of mind or softening colour ……watch the video for more info.
In this double demo DVD, Julie shared her processes as a guest of the *Australian Guild of Realist Artists. and The Brialyn Boathouse Gallery. In this relaxed video you will see her painting progress from start to finish using her favourite brushes and other ’tricks of the trade’ as she goes. Not the eploration of both light and dark backgrounds.
As well as sharing the finer points of working on w/c canvas, she answers questions from the audience.

Video Notes PDU No. 4a
This new DVD revisits the Flinders Ranges. Julie shows how she utilises various photos from a painting trip to inspire a fresh painting. Mixing colour to work fluently, brush use, changing the colours to add mood and meaning, different strokes, building layers, softening, blending, sharpening techniques and much more are shown and explained.

Video notes PDU No. 6
Track to the Grampian Mts.
Julie has just returned from a week teaching in the Gramoians. There is much to see but she cannot stop to paint. Photos and her personal observation are stating point for this demo in the studio.
Watch the painting unfold from start to finish and all is explained. But note the interpretation of her colour mixing choices and the way the washes can be varied for effect.

Video notes PDU No. 8
Yupo offers exciting possibilities to watercolour or acrylic artists. Watch the unpredictability of letting the richly pigmented watercolour merge. Then see ways to manipulate it. After this the surface can be reclaimed where more detailed or richer colours help define the subjects of the painting.This is an inspiring combination of freedom and possibility of control.


PDU No.3 Fraser Island Moon
A DVD that shows that mood can be changed with simple changes. The layering process is shown in a live demonstration of the open beachscape of Fraser Island. A bonus Fraser Island Long Open Beach DVD is included.

PDU No.5 Sunshine and Stormclouds.
Colour contrast and the temperature of light are the tools shown to advantage in this DVD. Showing more detailed description of the rendering of pastel inert or active in the layering process a wider freedom emerges to create.

PDU No.7 Kookaburra
Painting is about seeing and we become more powerful as we learn to interpret what we see. This DVD explores the drawing process. We are not always blessed with perfect drawing ability.(i.e correctly interpreting or processing what we see)
Lyn takes you through a process explaining how to keep refining our decisions if they need it. All painting is also refining visual choice and perception.  Come with her through the first steps of the raw drawing to a finished refinement of this Australian Kookaburra.

PDU No.9 Twilight Glow
In this Mastering Pastel series Lyn shows how simply the dry pastel can be layered to build and blend into the colour, tone and texture that creates just the finish we want. Relax with this medium and create with ease.
