NEW Large Scale Watercolour

The watercolour medium is typically for small personal sketches or detailed, intricate and delicate flora or fauna typical of biological diagrams, many watercolour artists don’t work larger than ten inches square. This class will focus on large-scale watercolour techniques from wet on wet painting techniques, to stretching paper, to enlarging a photographic source in which to draw from. Students will grow comfortable in the medium and learn how to prepare paper for large-scale watercolour paintings.

Oil Portraits (Intermediate)

This oil portrait-painting course focuses on paint handling as well as careful colour mixing for rendering particular lights, shadows and textures to create form and evoke personality. Steps for layering the portrait first from wide broad shapes of tone, to medium sized colours laid next to each other, and finishing with fine, subtle details will be introduced and practiced. Students will work with photographic sources, warm-up exercises, brief sketches, and mirrors. An introduction to oil painting with experience and practice in colour theory (colour mixing) and basic drawing skills are strongly suggested as prerequisites for this course. Please bring: painting supplies (see list), a 12 x 16 canvas or canvas board, a clear and well-lit 8” x 10” printed colour portrait photograph of yourself or loved one (please bring a hard copy rather than rely on your phone or IPad). Class limit is 15.
