Event description

Description

Clarise Beckett was a tonalist painter, in the Max Meldrum tradition, who painted many works around Beaumaris. Her work has been largely forgotten but embraced many aspect of tonalism, minimalism in a modernist way. This walk will visit places both she and the Heildelberg School Impressionists painted and look at tonal balance in the way a photo can be composed. Hopefully you’ll also get a chance to photograph a variety of water birds, beach scenes and some traditional (less colourful) beach boxes.

“A painter should begin every canvas with a wash of black, because all things in nature are dark except where exposed by the light.”
Leonardo da Vinci
