- Creating Your Own Compositions
Tuesday, 17 Jan to 21 Feb, 10:30am to 1:00 pm
Tuition: 300 euro
Students will be taken through more advanced techniques in creating three dimensional painting using color, edges and temperature in oils. This course will lead students into re-creating images from students own reference. The problem of using photo-graphic reference and or drawings is in recreating the sense of light and form. An artist needs to reinterpret the form and light. This demands using ones imagination in color and light and form. Simple techniques and devices will be demonstrated and practiced with students on their projects individually.
How does one compose a painting or picture? Every image has a story to tell and artists must interpret the image to re-create the most powerful impact.
Classes are limited to 8 students. Materials List emailed once student registers.
