Abstract Landscapes in Oils View details

In these sessions, students will work through exploratory drawings for direct energy and freshness, working through ways of getting that equivalent quality into the paint. We will look at the fundamental building blocks of painting such as how to see colour and value relationships, producing value charts/colour wheel and swatches, supported by blocks of painting techniques and developing confidence with oil paints. Inspired by both the land and the sea, students will identify with the subject over the course. You will then bring these exciting studies to the first day of the course providing the impetus for your paintings. This course will explore the possibilities of changing light, colour and mark making; the importance of direction, movement, surface and the function of specific bodily energies. The qualities of what makes a painting will be explored. Working large scale, paintings will become alive and interactive with the spectator.
