The focus of this class will be in understanding the relationship between values and light and the effects they have on the palette of your painting. Much emphasis will be placed on fine tuning the student's observation skills and their ability to decide what scenes/objects make for interesting painting compositions. Most classes begin with a demonstration teaching students about color, mixing, values, composition and brush strokes. Students will have the choice to work from supplied images or to use one of their own. The use of acetate overlays is a tool to illustrate various possibilities in the student's work, without having to touch the original canvas. This class is open to acrylic and oil painters.
