About Working in Colour with the Scottish Colourists
This course will look at how different palettes can affect a painting. The subject of this two day course will be various works by different Scottish Colourists, their different palettes and bold compositions.
You will draw a series of sketches to catch the feel of the work then do a number of quick paintings. You will be using different colours to start to understand about the part colour plays in composition.
On the second day you will focus on one picture.
