Haven Artists’ workshop, Saturday 4th November 2021

11am - 4pm

 Theme: Focus on Red

VENUE: Catisfield Hall, Fareham

Red!  What does red evoke for you? It can mean so many things:

fire, heat, passion for example... danger, anger and so on.  It’s been

a really interesting subject to research for this workshop as many

artists since the first recorded art works in caves have used red

pigment to portray their ideas. 

  This bold colour, whether


vermilion, cardinal, or scarlet

still retain its power. Red

artworks fetch

the highest prices at auction.

Red is the color of revolution,

of seduction.

And its story is far from over.

Last week I went to see Rothko’s

paintings at The Pace Gallery

in London (free – go along if

you can!) and was reminded

of the intensity of red,

especially when layered

over other colours, or placed in the middle of its contrasting

colours, such as electric blue, or bright green! 

The Tate Britain holds many of his truly red paintings,

just in case you’re up there some time...
