Saturday's (second in the month):
10am till 4pm
Venue: Ian's Art Studio, Nevendon, ESSEX
The topic(s) discussed/explored in the early session will be chosen from:- Design Principles, Tonal Studies, Application methods (e.g. Wet in Wet, Dry on Wet, Gradation, Washes and Glazing), Colour Theory, Equipment and Materials and, if required, revision on “Value Pattern sketches”. Exercises will be provided to accompany topics. Attendees are invited to bring along a photo of a subject* they would like to paint - a selection is provided if preferred. Ideas on planning before painting will be discussed. *Best subjects to bring at this stage are outdoor subjects or still life (not portraits – these will be covered later). Those wishing to concentrate more on drawing can work on still life studies and other sketching exercises to help develop this skill.
