One day Workshops


Tuesday 7th April 2020

Colour & Light

Acrylics & Oils. All abilities

Two things that have fascinated painters as far back as we can go...

...but also two things that can some times feel elusive, intangible and tricky to master.

Creating interesting and exciting light can bring a painting to life, and working with certain colours can completely alter the mood and the way we "feel" a subject.

A lot of it comes down to how we observe and interpret our subject, which we will look closely at; but as always there are plenty of other parts of the painting process that can help us get to grips and bring to life these two key principles:

  • What to look for in a subject

  • What to put in and what to leave out

  • How to look for and paint the light

  • How does light effect different colours

  • Colour mixing

  • Creating dram, atmosphere & mood in a painting

  • The different ways we can use colours

  • How to use different colours and staurations to draw attention to different area
