Continuing the introductions of our new tutors for 2023 we’re delighted to welcome Mark Dober to the Watermill team.
Mark, from Victoria, South-east Australia, loves to make paintings and drawings in the landscape. He says: “The beauty of nature inspires me, but also a sense of its strangeness. My work expresses both belonging and otherness. I seek to convey immediacy and a sense of the experiential in my work, hence the necessity of working on site.”
As well as a talented artist, Mark is also an experienced teacher. He will demonstrate in watercolour, though students may choose to use or try other painting media – gouache, acrylics and oils. He will proceed step by step, increasingly giving individual attention to each artist’s work. One previous student said: “Mark has a wealth of knowledge about plein air painting and shares his knowledge generously. No matter what skill level you have he can give you the confidence and encouragement to put paint to (surface/canvas/paper) in a way which is fresh and exciting.”
Mark will be with us from Saturday 1 July to Saturday 8 July 2023. Come and join him for a fresh look at the Tuscan landscape.
1 – 8 July 2023
