ARTISTS
Jane Osypenko
Jane graduated from Art University in 2003 and she is an experienced Art teacher who has been working with students of all ages ever since. Originally from Ukraine, Jane has been living in Sydney for 7 years now and has completely fallen in love with the amazing Australian nature. She loves to incorporate the beauty of the outdoors into her artwork and encourages her students to do the same.

She loves to paint with oil on canvas, acrylics, watercolors, and pretty much any other medium you can think of! But the thing that really sets Jane apart is how excited she gets to see her students' happy faces and their amazing results after every class. It's clear that art is her passion, and she loves nothing more than inspiring others to discover their own creative talents.

Title or Location: Emily, let them eat cake!
My friend, Emily, sometimes models for ball gowns and wedding dress photography, and one of her photos was the inspiration for this watercolour painting. I felt she reminded me of the decadent Marie Antoinette as she tucked into a large slice of wedding cake. I've often painted Emily as she reminds me of some of the beautiful Pre-Raphealite women in the paintings by Rossetti, Millais, Holman Hunt and Waterhouse. I've been learning to paint watercolour portraits for about four years now.

I have been teaching watercolour for 10 years, I have found white flowers is the most complicated part in watercolour, however if you know how to use negative technique it will be the most interesting painting you have ever done. This is the magic of watercolour.

Title or Location: Autumn
The Watercolour is partly from my imagination, and partly from a couple of buildings that seem to be in my memory, exactly where they are from I cannot recall. In the past I was an avid photographer of some 40 years and I have also have seen a lot images over the years. We are in the last month of Autumn in Sydney, Australia and I wanted to create a painting that expressed not only the warmth of the season but also a village that was welcoming as well.

Taken at local park as sun was setting. The light as the sun was setting reminded me of a painting from a tutorial I had previously worked on. It was reminiscent of the French countryside and was something that looked so peaceful.

Title or Location: Gracie
I find painting dogs very interesting because their appearance is so varied. This golden doodle is from a friend's photo of her pet Gracie. I painted a loose background in watercolours then painted negatively to pick out the wavey and curly areas of her coat. Gouache picked out some lighter areas. I find painting without a drawing creates a looser result. I start with the nose and measure from there.
