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
the highest prices at auction.
Red is the color of revolution,
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...
