Course Description

Discover new ways to bring more luminosity to your oil paintings. Each week Elizabeth will demonstrate different pigments and various techniques for creating the optical illusion of depth, atmosphere, and brilliance. Students may choose any subjects to work from - photo reference, still life, master copy, etc - that will concentrate on light, shadow, and color. Using black and white as a background color, as well as the balance between bright saturated and subdued muted tones will also be explored. Some prior knowledge of drawing and color mixing is suggested.
