Artists in "The Zone" with Genesis Heat Set Oils

Once the artists started painting the concentration and interest in using the Genesis Heat Set Oils was complete. Silence decended and everyone entered the 'zone of creativity'.

Wonderful Week-End Painting!


The Genesis Heat Set Oil Painting Workshop tutored by Ludij Peden was a great success. Thanks to Reginal Arts Development Fund and Cook Shire Council for funding the workshop and giving so many artists and newbies the chance to participate.

The Regional Arts Development Fund is a Queensland Government and Cook Shire partnership to support local arts and culture.

Without this funding our small community of artists would not have had such an opportunity.

Ready To Try!

The Genesis Heat Set Oil Painting Workshop by Ludij Peden is set to begin this week-end. The students are eager to try this new type of oil paint. Many have tried traditional oils nad moved to acrylics when traditional oils caused problems because of toxicity or the smell of turps.

Results of the workshop will be posted on this blog! Hopefully inspiring works of art!

Artist Ludij Peden

Raised in Cairns in Far North Queensland, Ludij Peden has shown a fascination with painting houses. Her first exhibition, in Brisbane, entitled ‘Pub Crawl’ featured historic hotel buildings around Queensland and northern New South Wales. Ludij noticed the destruction of old houses as they where demolished to make way for modern buildings. By painting old Australian houses and cottages she captures the image before they disappear.

Ludij started using watercolours in the 1980's after heavy metals and the solvents in her oil paints made her very ill.

Recently Ludij discovered Genesis Heat Set Oils which are non-toxic and odourless and yet handle like traditional oil paint. They stay wet until dried with a heat gun.

Ludij's most recent solo exhibition in Cairns, ‘Contrasts’, featured a mix of oils and watercolour paintings featuring houses and scenes from across Australia and paintings from a recent trip to New Zealand.

Ludij and her husband live in Yungaburra on the Atherton Tablelands and Ludij has an art studio behind the house.
