Painting In Perspective

16 Jan 2019 - 17 Jan 2019

Build on your drawing and painting skills to better understand proportion and perspective in architecture.

This two-day workshop with Kevin McKay will explore ways of responding to the urban landscape with a practical approach. Kevin will show you how to use simple compositional and framing techniques to sketch accurately and how to use tone in capturing the effects of light and shadow, as well as the softening effect of atmosphere.  Kevin will introduce you to acrylic and oil painting, with demonstrations in tonal painting and colour-mixing and with reference to artists who work in this genre, both historical and contemporary.  

Participants will produce several drawings from architectural still life, as well as a tonal painting and a painting in full colour from photographic reference.
