(No classes held 7 Mar, 11 - 25 Apr and 9 May)
This ongoing studio-based course is for experienced oil painters who want to deepen their understanding of the development of painting in relationship to light, colour, tonal structure, composition, etc. It is a studio course, held over two terms.
Through observation, curiosity and the practice of direct and indirect painting, participants will undertake tasks to extend perception, and gain knowledge, experience and insight into effective visual representation. These exercises will explore a range of subjects, from still life, to photo references, to portraiture, and will investigate elements of painting in relation to the visible world.
This course includes demonstrations and discussion.
