”Congratulations on your workshop it was a pleasure to paint with a
group of people who had similar goals of improving their painting skills. I
thoroughly enjoyed every minute spent at your property at Nulla Nulla and the
day we spent painting plein-air down by the creek was special..
From a technical perspective it was good to watch you work and the
emphasis you placed on establishing the correct tones. I now understand i need
to be more considered in my approach to really looking and establishing the
tonal balance and to be far for patient in how I apply the paint , make a
considered mark move on and not rework.
Again thank you for a great week.”
Thanks Gordon for a great week of painting. I found that the introduction to plein air painting was very helpful, especially with your one on one help with composition and tonal values. The location of your property at Nulla Creek was inspirational with such a variety of subjects, I did enjoy the hospitality and the company of the other painters as well as the comfortable accommodation at the homestead.
Congratulations on conducting a very professional workshop.
My personal experience when attending workshops at Nulla Nulla with Gordon Rossiter on his property “Kogal” have been enjoyable, stimulating and informative.
The enveloping hills and beauty of the country together with the company of people with like interests brings one back to nature and creates a peaceful ambience where one can absorb the guidance given by Gordon to assist in the development of ones journey in painting in oils.
