We’ve been composing our Beatles playlist all week in preparation for this Thursday’s Draw Paint Film club. For you lovely lot we will be painting from Julie Taymor’s vibrant musical “Across the Universe”
There is a huge emphasis on theatrical technique in this film. 90% of the songs being recorded live on set. This is such a fun loving and colourful film, we know that it is perfect for Stills and Paint. It will teach you so much about the relationship of film to other art mediums and gives you a superb starting point for learning to draw and paint.
As ever we have a bring your own bottle policy. So, grab a tinny and park yourself down for a fun night of painting and great chat!
We encourage people to bring their own materials. We all have different personal tastes in terms of quality and method when it comes to painting. There is no one size fits all! It's important you work with a brand and material you are comfortable with. If you need any guidance on purchasing materials, and what is best for you please feel free to send us a message through our facebook page (link at bottom of page).
However , we also realise that this is an introduction to painting for many people so these can be provided.
Learning to draw from film stills is an amazing skill to develop. Increasingly, more and more artists work from photographs. Film stills give you access to quality formatted photography where every aspect of the image has been considered. It is a fascinating method of learning the technical devices of painting and drawing.
