Ros Psakis will conduct a workshop in Oils on the 12th September 2015.
PAINTING FIGURES IN THE SUNLIGHT.
Note: Acrylic painters would gain benefit from this workshop.
Using my easy to understand method of getting the subject onto the board, painting figures and animals are no harder than any other subject. ….. The subject photograph supplied will have all the answers, come and see how easy it is to interpret a photograph and make into a painting.
The workshop will cover coming to grips with colour mixing.
How to recognise and judge tone.
How to simplify even the most complicated drawings.
The importance of good lighting on the subject.
Making the best use of composition.
Plenty of handouts, individual attention, and an uncomplicated approach to painting that will make ANY subject not only possible, but easy. Come and join me to paint some sunlight.
