Gisele studied medical painting therapy and artistic painting at the Sienna Academy in Queensland, and has experience as a Waldorf painting tutor with children and teachers. Gisele draws on the method developed by Liane Collot d’Herbois whose work was inspired by the colour theories of Rudolf Steiner and Wolfgang von Goethe
A painting workshop with Gisele West,
based on the laws of light, darkness and colour.
We will work with moist-on-moist and veil painting, in exercises that are nurturing, balancing and enlivening. Painting this way with colour and movement brings inner mobility to our thought processes and our emotional life.
Each colour responds differently to light. Where colours come together, new and subtle hues emerge. Forms begin to manifest, and images present themselves.
‘With colour one should not just look at them, but look and see the colours. One should always be conscious of it, wherever and in whatever form one meets it. Because then one can do something. Such conscious observation is a creative deed in the soul-world, where one does something for the whole environment.’
… Liane Collot d’Herbois
Come for a morning of luminous colours, light-heartedness and warmth as you explore these painting techniques.
