Details This class will include a variety of subjects – 3 landscapes, 1 floral, and 1 still life. Each odd numbered week (week 1, 3, 5 etc.) Cheryl will provide colour references of paintings to work from which employ specific aspects of handling colour. Line work will also be supplied for more complex paintings. On the even numbered weeks students bring their own reference (any subject) and paint (any size) using the same colour parameters that were taught on the previous week. Some of the topics covered will be: value, intensity, temperature, and more. Those new into art will find this a practical way to learn colour theory. Those who have taken my previous colour course will find this continuation and reinforcement of the key colour concepts.
