Suggestion Space for Group Painting

  • to

    TBA, Auckland (map)

  • This is a planning space for the next painting night. Comment your suggestions and what you'd like to see.

    What do you want the next painting to be of? I'd like it to have a NZ influence. Let me know your ideas. And some people like working from real photographs so if you have or find a photo you like, you can show it to me.

    FYI: Our meetups end up being very laid back. I wasn't sure what would be needed but after I explained the basic idea of what we were doing, everyone went to work on their painting and they all turned out great. Very little instruction was needed; just motivation to paint your cares away! :)

    Hey guys. Has the group done a still life session? Participants can each bring a random object, two or three people can make installations with those objects, then we paint the installations.

      Not yet, could possibly do something like that in the future. We have just been painting from photographs so far.

      Photos are great, too. I'm keen to join the next meetup. Let me know when it firms up. 😊

    Hi Jackie, I've got a surgery 1st November. Off work for couple of months. See you all next year. Best wishes:)

    Hey everyone, our usual painting location is no longer available and I haven't been able to find a replacement. My current plan is to possibly organize events on weekends when the weather is nice and we can meet in a park somewhere and paint outside. Still trying to work out logistics (such as if sitting on the ground and painting is doable for members or if there is a park with benches for all of us). Alternatively, let me know if you know of an office space that would be happy to have us.

    Still working on a venue. Very hard to find a free place who will have us...

    March 14

  • James J

    I'm wondering if the venue is still pending or planned. And also if we can see and download the picture on my phone.

    • Jackie K.

      Still pending. Having trouble finding a free venue and I just started attending classes last week so will have to finish tackling that issue soon.

    Does everyone have to paint the same subject and use same medium? Can people paint what they want and use the space to motivate, inspire, connect and get feedback? Being an artist can get lonely and Id love to join but paint what I want.

    March 2

    • Jackie K.

      Well everyone uses the materials provided, which is a canvas and acrylic paints. The subject is just to get people motivated. If you check out the pictures from the previous meetup, you'll see that they vary and people were able to just use the idea as a jumping off point and painted how they wanted. This meetup is not really for feedback as it's more for motivation and socialization, so there is just praise and no criticism.

      Oooh, that has so much in it. One Tree Hill, sheep, a pohutukawa. I love it.

    Or somewhere on the Shore would be nice for all Shoreites.

    Hi Jackie,
    Perhaps a scene overlooking Piha or Karekare etc. As I'm inexperienced I'm not sure how complicated it would be. I'll see if I can send you a couple of photos I have from recent tramping trips.
    Have a great week.
