Acclaimed painter Daniel Butterworth will lead a practical workshop demonstrating his energetic and expressive style in portraiture. This learning session is aimed at building your confidence in colour mixing and mark making as Daniel leads you into the treacherous territory of the self-portrait.
Workshop Requirements: Participants will be required to bring an image of yourself on your charged smartphone or tablet (or a colour print if these are unavailable).
Beginning his creative journey as an apprentice sign writer, Daniel felt the need to peruse his artistic instincts by studying art formally. Indicative of his energy, Daniel submitted forty self-portraits as part of his application for entry into Latrobe University.
Daniel’s raw and expressive works have seen him included in many prestigious Australian and International Portrait Prize Exhibitions; including the coveted Archibald, Doug Moran, Black Swan and BP Portraiture Prizes.
“The self-portrait is the dominant subject of my work…finding that I am most free when I paint them. Through painting the self I tackle social and political issues…my latest series dealing with depression.”
