Exploring The Use Of Colour In Landscape Painting
21 Jan 2021 - 22 Jan 2021
This two-day workshop will explore ways of painting landscapes with a practical approach to the use of colour.
The workshop begins with developing methods to create small compositional studies and research drawings from your photographs. For these initial studies you can use all types of water based media on paper including charcoal, dry pigments, inks, pastels, watercolours, gouache and acrylics. This will help you to understand composition, tone and colour as well as helping to loosen up your mark making.
The second stage of the workshop will demonstrate how to begin the painting and then to apply paint using both a brush and palette knife to create texture and atmosphere in your work. Ashley will introduce you to acrylic and oil paintings, with demonstrations in tonal painting and colour-mixing and with reference to artists who work in this genre, both historical and contemporary. Ashley will explore relevant aspects of colour theory such as using compositional opposite colour to find neutral warm and cool greys as well as exploring analogous colour schemes. Participants will produce several drawings from their photographs and then select one to create a painting in full colour.
Class Date: Thrsday 21 January and Friday 22 January 2021. Cost: $227. Time: 10am - 4pm.
