Realise your creativity this October within the beauty of Paradise One within a supportive group context, where we will quest to develop our art & inner vision, through the practice of painting, visualisation, and learning the language of symbols.

Daniel Mirante will share his detailed knowledge and practice of Mischtechnik (mixed technique of oils and egg tempera) which he learned from Brigid Marlin and Ernst Fuchs, as an ideal approach for bringing vision into form, and for engaging with painting as a meditative process of self-discovery.

The retreat will be a balance of “Techne” & “Psyche“. With Psyche, we will explore our intuitive creativity. We will develop this exploration through Techne – old masters methods of composition and oil painting with egg tempera , in a guided process suitable for people of all levels of artistic experience.

* An Introduction to the Process
* Introduction to oil paint and emulsion
* Instruction to Mediums
* Introduction to Pigments
* co-creation * spontaneous and improvised visionary imagery
* Design and transfer onto panel- charcoal trace
* Design and India ink
* Optical Grisaille and Optical Colour Mixing
* Understanding values of light, dark, mid-tone, ‘keying’ the values of the piece
* Hatching in egg tempera grassa
* Glazing and scumbling (velatura) in oils
