THE YACK THEME
Working on a theme can be one of the best ways to get those creative juices flowing and to get out of a rut. But only if you avoid the habits that you may have been falling into.
By spending 5 days exploring the theme of “Yackandandah” we will spend time en-plein air gathering information and time in the studio developing ideas and producing paintings around the theme ( and avoiding bad habits).
The challenge will be to produce a body of work based on Yackandandah without falling into the trap of doing a series of cliche Australiana paintings. How? Well, we are going to work that out.
