Landscapes with strong shadows - next class 27th February

Half term already so there is no class on the 20th.  Back on the 27th.

 

Continuing our shadows work, we'll be using our own homework photos or sketches of landscapes with strong shadows in the next class. 

 

Don't forget the other piece of homework that we've been set for a class soon - collect pictures with objects that are well backlit (perhaps take your own photo of things on a windowsill if we get a sunny/bright day).

Small objects - next class 13th February

There is no class 6th February but we'll be back to it on the 13th working on at least two paintings of small objects on colourful backgrounds. 

 

Bring in a small something to add to the shared subjects - a tiny bowl, an interesting pebble or anything else as long as it's something not too difficult to paint - and hopefully we'll get a good mix of natural and manufactured things. 

 

Our two weeks of winter landscapes have been wonderful - the gallery can be seen here.

Winter landscapes II - next class 30th January

Colours were really strong in our winter landscapes this week and we're going to try to keep this up in the next class.  More winter landscapes are planned for the 30th but using photos or one of your own sketches only.

 

Homework has been set to get us prepared for classes later in the term:  collect landscapes with very strong shadows and pictures with objects that are well backlit (perhaps take your own photo of things on a windowsill if we get a sunny/bright day).
