Demonstration on Saturday 20 August 2022
Watercolours with Rob Candy

Great demonstration afternoon at Whitehorse Arts was watercolour with Rob Candy.

He says “I am a lover of landscapes and places, being passionate to record them in watercolour – not only the stunningly beautiful, as in the case of Sydney Harbour, but also the ordinary, such as an urban lane or old farm shed.

Painting exclusively in watercolour, I enjoy the challenge of laying transparent watercolour washes on rough paper and allowing the medium to dictate the outcome. I use watercolour due to its portability, allowing me to paint in situ.
Rob Candy began painting watercolours at Ku-ring-Gai Art Centre in Sydney with Owen Thompson and at the Royal Art Society with Frederick Bates OAM. He has a degree in Geography, which informs his analysis of, and appreciation for the landscape.

Since 2005 he has taught painting at Ku-ring-Gai Art Centre Sydney and he conducts workshops throughout Australia. A passionate traveller, he las led, both as guide and tutor, numerous watercolour tours. His visit to Normandy culminated in a solo exhibition with the them of the fishermen of Honfleur, France.

Wow, this demonstration was amazing and a full report will appear in our next Newsletter.
