Winter Workshop with Derric van Rensburg

 Derric van Rensburg kicked off our 2015 season on 30 May, with a fascinating workshop, giving us a "behind the scenes" look at his loose and lighthearted painting style.

He built his demo paintings with enormous brushes and a limited palette, mixing up a wonderful range of colours, which he applied with quick dabs and strokes, in fast drying layers of acrylic paint.

He made it look so easy and effortless, it was quite a surprise to find how difficult it actually was, when it came to trying out the technique for ourselves.

Although we all worked from the same reference photograph, the guidance and advice Derric gave was gentle and tailored to each individual, so that everyone produced a totally unique interpretation of it.

We each took away with us a new respect for acrylic paint, a selection of paintings and head full of new ideas. Thank you Derric, for a Saturday well-spent!

Has anything ever bothered you in life? Do you
have any problem you need to solve? A pending
court case you want to resolve in your favor?
Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to
the world of miracles and wonders, there are
supernatural treasure and power to liberate
mankind from all afflictions. Why cant you live a
life of your dream? Why must you work so hard
and yet earn so little? Why cant you be happy
with the one you love and desire or why cant the
one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
solution or cure to your problems? Why would
your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
your place of work? You want to venture into
politics? Now I understand certain things are
hard to believe and comprehend, but all I ask
from you is only 3 days and if you will follow my
instructions and use the items you will receive, I
promise your life will never be the same
again.If you find no relevance in the help I offer
I solemnly appeals do not be vindictive and go
in peace. And if your intentions are to take
advantage of the powerful nature of our items
for the purpose of evil, I will not have any
business with you please be advised. May
angels guide you. All inquiries should be
