Our subject for the workshop
From choosing hte objects to arranging and lighting them to create an interesting pattern of light and shadow
Use Munsell to guide and inform your colour choices
Use the Munsell scale to absolutely nail your values, and use delicate edge handling to create depth, form and focus
Easy to understand explanations of how light affects colour in the lights and the shadows - and how to mix those colours
Exceptional quality live video sessions, taking you brush stroke by brush stroke through beautiful rose paintings. Paint along live or watch and paint later from the replay
High quality, detailed videos covering aspects of the course: mixing and judging colour in light and shadow, for example. We'll be using Munsell for this so I'd recommend you have a Munsell book
A friendly and incredibly supportive group where you can share your work and see others too, all in a private group for workshop attendees only
A beautifully set up and shot image of the main composition, as well as a value only version with the values of each main area marked
Everything you need including brushes, surface, tube colours and brand
Fortnightly critique session. You can join as many or as few as you like, pay as you go
Are the live session recorded?
Yes. They're immediately available for you to watch any time you like, and you have access to them as long as you like (even after the workshop finishes)
What medium will we be using?
Oils on Panels, Ampersand Gesobord panels or oil primed, e.g. from Trekkel, are good, with a medium of linseed oil and a solvent. The main painting will be 16 x 12 inches, you'll also need some smaller panels for a value study and colour studies
When will the live sessions be?
On Mondays at 6PM UK time (1PM Eastern, 10AM Pacific). They usdually last 2 to 3 hours.
What will happen when I sign up?
You'll have time to get the materials list together, which you'll have immedate access to. I'll then inform you by email when the first live session will be with a link to join the session live. You'll also get an invite to the facebook group.
When does it start?
The first live session is planned for Monday, October 4th.
Will Munsell be involved?
Yes! At a minimum you'll need a Munsell value scale (you can get one for only $10 though, I'll send you a link and it is included inthe materials list). I would strongly recommend having the Student Munsell Book or the Paul Centore Munsell book at a minimum too (links to these will be provided). The workshop will be using Munsell throughout to help you get your colours right. If you don't like the idea of Munsell, this probably isn't for you!
How will the group critique chats be done?
These will be zoom calls and usually last 2 to 3 hours. The group chats and critique sessions are very informal and fun! A lot of learning happens here too which can't be covered in the live sessions.
Critique groups will be no more than ten at a time. Calls will be every two weeks, and you can join as few or as many as you like, paying as you go. Each critique session is an additional $50.
There is also a lot of support and bonding on these calls. We do cover serious critique as well, both strengths and things that can be improved, with ideas on how to go about it. People often tell me that seeing the critiques of other people's work teaches them as much as critiques of their own.
