3 Tips for mastering your own painting.

Latest Paint By Shadow HobbyX







On March 8, 2015, HobbyX at The Dome was another huge success for Paint by Shadow! We used a YouTube video looping on a screen to encourage people to join, and I had a customer show me what he’d done with a Paint by Shadow he’d purchased at HobbyX Gallagher in September. We also launched the Paint by Shadow Value series, which sold out. The Value range offers more choices to our customer base, and the opportunity of to build confidence before moving onto the Professional range.

About the workshop:

Paint by Shadow also hosted its first workshop at HobbyX, which received great feedback. This has lead to the planning of regular workshops for beginners.

The workshops teach basic principles of colour mixing and tonal range, important to know to complete a successful Paint by Shadow painting. A few tips for beginners:


Tip 1 # Identify  your  tonal range ie from shadow to hi-light on your image.
Tip 2 # Add one colour down on colour wheel  to mix your  shadow colour
Tip 3 # Add one colour up plus white to mix your hi-light colour






So what is the difference?

Professional range is printed on 360 gsm artist canvas, stretched on artist frame
Value range is printed on 135 gsm canvas and stretched on a supawood frame

For the time being both ranges will run the same images,giving customers choice of
quality of canvas they wish to paint on.

Sizes and Pricing:

Professional range is available in: 20x30cm ; 30x40cm; 40x60cm; 60x80cm and 80x120cm. Value range is available in 20 x 30cm and 30 x 40cm.

  

                      
9 new images in the range were also launched at HobbyX at The Dome in March 2015, including new prints for beginners, intermediate artists, and advanced painters. New images include poppies, bistro, table mountain, robin, flying seagull, seagull on wall, geranium, horse, and orchid.

Team Building @ Gold Reef City

Early Morning on Wednesday the 19th of August, I asked my flu if we could have "THE TALK", I’m sure there and then, it knew it was time for us to part ways. There was no way I was gonna miss Gold Reef City, just the week before someone asked me “when was the last time you did something for the first time?” and I couldn’t answer them. I was ready to take on the roller coasters.


We’ve had so many team building sessions in the past but this was by far the best for me and for most of my colleagues. We were divided into 4 teams, Red, Blue, Green and Black for an Amazing Race type of challenge. I was in the Black Team, we wanted to win but we all decided that having fun was important too! We watched a 15 minute 4d movie, which was absolutely incredible but then, it was time for thrill ride number 1, the Tornado, just looking at it made my tummy turn and I unfortunately decided to sit it out, watching my team mates being tossed and turned around like they weighed nothing at all ma…
