Why does Jason think  this course would be of value to you as a painter ?
‘Understanding more about how colour works in art has hugely improved my own painting in the last few years. I now know how and why I am going to use certain colour combinations. This has meant that my paintings achieve my goals more often, they take less time to produce and I feel more in control as I paint. Adding to your colour knowledge will help you become a more skillful artist.

What will you do on the course ?

Jason teaches by providing weekly demonstrations of exercises to be undertaken. He also provides hand outs and talks that help you better understand the practical applications of colour theory.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand a little more about how we perceive colours emotionally
  • Understand how to balance the amount of colours you use in a picture to create the most dramatic effects
  • Examine paintings from the past and recognise the planning of colour use
  • Explore using hamonising and jarring colour combinations.
  • Paint a number of your own sketches and pictures that show a deeper understanding of how colour works in pictures.

What will you need to bring ?

You can choose to undertake this course using either acrylics or watercolour.
Please bring your painting kit to the first session including: water pots, palette, brushes, paper, drawing board, kitchen roll and masking tape.
I would also bring a pen, pencil and note book.
