This course is for anyone interested in learning how to paint portraits and landscapes with some basic knowledge of painting in acrylic, watercolour or oil.
In this painting class you will learn the skill needed to paint captivating portraits and landscapes with detail and depth. We will explore painting in monochrome tones and in the full colour spectrum. There is some drawing for composition involved at the beginning of this process. For the portraits the grid technique for enlarging images will be used. In the landscape genre painting techniques such as wet in wet, dry brush and glazing will be fully explored. The efficient use of brushes, palette knives and other tools for creating rich textures and interesting effects will be ongoing throughout the course.
