 COLOUR, DESIGN, ATMOSPHERE

This  workshop is designed for beginners and intermediate students –  all mediums welcome. Ann will be working in oils.

This workshop will focus on composition, structure and design of your landscape. Before a painting is even begun, decisions have to be made about the overall design. Some of these decisions include:

1.      Focal Points/Planes

2.      Shapes  and Lines

3.      Design Principles

4.      Space/Orientation/Flow

5.      Use of values/value studies

6.      Colour harmony – limited palette

Each morning will start with a brief discussion of the above subject matters, followed by exercises designed to help you think about the composition before starting. This will be followed by a short demo, after which each participant will be working on their own paintings, with one-one-one assistance from ann. You will be asked to bring your own reference photos and we will spend time going over them prior to painting.
