PAINTING LIFE AS YOU SEE IT

Tutor: Robert Eadie

£155 per six sessions

A painting is like a building; its expressive beauty is constructed upon solid foundations. Using still life objects, life drawings, and the model, we will construct paintings that express our individuality and personal style and yet are based on good technique. We will learn how to develop a strong composition and visual idea for a painting, establish tonality (lights and darks) and to draw with paint and build up colour. We will aim to complete one or two paintings over the course of each six-week term. Practical painting activity will be interspersed with illustrated discussions of the work of great artists, providing a context in which to view our own work. Guidance will be provided on painting technique, use of colour and painting mediums, and canvas stretching. This course is designed for beginners and those with some experience.
