Using a limited palette, learn the basics of color theory and how to apply them, painting from direct observation. Working from still-lifes, students learn to identify and mix color to define three dimensional forms. The same subject matter is used for several weeks to give students time for a polished completed painting. Progress to more complicated subjects to learn techniques in texture, reflective surfaces, clouds and many more. Advanced students can work from a still-life or their own photo references, learn new techniques, composition, and find their own voice or style of painting. No class 10/4/19.
