When Evert is not busy in Sydney being one of Australia’s finest and most acclaimed portrait artists, with 6 of his pieces currently hanging in the National Portrait Gallery, he loves to get out and about doing what he calls ‘stop & ponder’. He heads off to the beaches around New South Wales and creates magnificent, hardly known about artworks of the highest quality using coast, rocks, beach and dunes as his favourite subjects.

After staying over at Splashout for the last 2 years running, presenting his unique portrait workshops at our Marino Rocks Studio, he has decided that our local South Australian coast (especially in our immediate vicinity) is just as good, if not better than his usual haunts around Sydney.

Therefore as a real treat, Evert has asked if he may present a 2-day en plein air workshop to interested Splashout clients or anyone within the Splashout network.

I loved the Workshop.  Found that trying the exercises first and then watching a demonstration to be most informative because I had asked the questions myself and watching Evert helped answer them.  I enjoyed his teaching style.‘ Bernadette Woodward, July 2017
