In this workshop, we will explore using photographs as a starting point, but change the elements: composition, values or colours to create something new.

John Haycraft has been a professional artist since 1971. Trained as a perspective artist, he has over the years, developed his interest in watercolour as a medium for expressive painting particularly well adapted for plein-air work. A world traveller, he uses extensive sketching and on the spot painting to capture a sense of place with atmosphere. He works from his studio in Lilyfield, Sydney.
• A collection of his architectural drawings is held in the Mitchell Library, the State Library of New South Wales.
• He has travelled and painted extensively in Europe, Asia and Africa as well as frequent painting trips to the outback of Australia and in his birth-place, New Zealand.
• Studied with Australian artist Lloyd Rees, American watercolourist Charles Reid, Joseph Zbukvic, and Eugen Chisnicean.
