New Painting from Photographs Class 2017

Strengthening your Paintings: Tonal Fundamentals

 Description:   In painting, the terms “tone” and “value” refer to the lightness or darkness of a color. Most painters would agree value is more important than color, in painting.   In this class, we will work in monochrome with simple to complex images. We will also work on relating and pushing the values to create a more exciting composition.  This class will also focus on drawing and composition for a more dynamic finish.  3-week class
Cost $180. Class limit 8

Dynamic use of Color:

Description:   How do we make our paintings more interesting?  Knowing what particular color to choose can make our painting more appealing and are key to what we refer to as “harmony” in a painting.   Any given color has the components of “hue” “value” and “chroma”.   All three components must be considered for producing a successful painting.  The combination of certain colors can also enhance and create a more pleasing and interesting painting.  We will be working on exercises to emphasize an improved use of color.  3-week class. Cost $180. Class limit 8
