Karol Oakley Artist in resident 'Paint - Hahndorf - Heysen'


Exhibition Dates April 9 – May 13 2018

Artist in Residence at the Hahndorf Academy. To walk, paint and breathe a small part of Australian Master Painter Hans Heysen's home town; to visit and paint in places he painted and made famous a hundred years ago while listening to stories of the people who live and work in Hahndorf now. The colours of autumn, the cool climate and the atmospheric light are intriguing to one who lives in Queensland. This residency gives me the opportunity to study and learn from the master of light.

Karol paints both "en plein-air" and studio work, in pastel, oil and pen and wash in the locality of Hahndorf.

There is a series of workshops covering a range of subjects for artists in oils and pastels, mixed media, pen and wash. The style of work is representational, that is to say it represents the subject. A special highlight is a day painting at The Cedars. These workshops and events are a way for me to give back to the arts community.

Special Events have been planned for artists and friends at different cafés in Hahndorf each Friday morning. This is a social time for locals and visitors alike to get to know each other and have work with Pen and wash drawings.
