Colour - the language of dreams
Course dates: October 25th & 26th 2018 (Thursday & Friday)
Colour! What a deep and mysterious language, the language of dreams'. (Paul Gauguin)
Colour is something as artist we often feel nervous or afraid of but used correctly it can open your work up to a kaleidoscope of possibilities. After many years of experimenting with colour I have learnt there are some fundamental rules that I keep coming back to that engage the luminosity and purity of the language. During the course we will be looking at how we can use colour with a little bit of theory but mainly taking a hands on approach working applying colour liberally and making our own discoveries.. Over the 3 days we will be looking at ways in which colour can open up your own work with key lessons about pigment, pitch, under painting, layering, transparency, opacity and luminosity.
