Course Details

Learn the importance of contrast, tone and colour relationships through the display of the still life object.

Painting with a limited palette allows one to learn the importance of contrast and tone. This course encourages one to make the most of what you have while creating a mood and balance in your piece. 

In this course students will learn:

  • To see the complex tonal varieties in the process of painting
  • Create mood and balance through the use of warm and cool tones
  • Create shadows with a white palette
  • Create multi-dimensional forms with a white palette
  • Observe how colour works in relation to other colours next to it
  • How the lines of composition guide the eye through the format to find a focal point
  • To explore your own way of expression

This course is appropriate for students at a beginners or intermediate level. No previous experience in painting required, everyone welcome.
