THE WATERCOLOUR WAY...Winter snowdrops, the subtleties of painting white!!
Monday the 4th February 2019
10am to 4pm

White is technically not a 'colour', but many artists struggle in giving good renditions of white objects as an understanding of tonal value is required and surprisingly 'white' objects are rarely white and instead are a sum total of their 'shadows' and reflected colours from their environment.

We will be learning how to translate a white winter floral firstly in a black and white notan using ink, we will then use a limited palette to build up a tonal painting of the floral, using salt for texture and playing with clingfilm to suggest the complexity of foliage, we will also be using glazing and the black ink with the background colours to give added strength to a powerful winter floral.
