To introduce you to the application of mixed acrylic paint and mediums to create visual dynamics.
Further exploration and application of simple colour theory and its uses, the application of warm and cool colours, making a simple colour pallet. Mixing colours, especially greys and greens. Transparency and opacity of paint (acrylics). For the first session please bring: Good quality A3 or A4 (your preference) landscape format sketchbook with 180gm + weight paper good enough to take paint and some water (220gm+ preferable). Acrylic paints. Please do not buy a set of acrylic paints, as they tend to not quite have the colours you want, and definitely not enough white paint, which you will use a lot. You will need: Cadmium Red, Alizarin Red, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Cerulean Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Titanium White. These paints can be ordered online, or a good art supply shop (you might find some of them in The Works or WH Smith but probably not all the colours).
Other blues, reds and yellows will have a different effect. Bring some brushes to first session, after that you will have a better idea of the sizes of flat and round brushes to get for the following sessions. Water pot (old yoghurt pot) - save you money for the paints. Stay-wet mixing pallet (commercial product) or make your own (tutor will demonstrate) using a sheet of acrylic pastic, ice cream tub lids or similar - the bigger the better. Greaseproof paper, kitchen roll, newspapers to cover tables, apron or other item to protect your clothing.
Please note there will be no teaching sessions on: 23/02/2022.
