Early Bird Offer - 10% off - Was £75 Now £67.50 - Offer valid until 14th July 2024 This one-day Acrylic Painting Workshop for Beginners starts with a basic introduction to the materials we will be using. This won't last long before we get mixing paint. Our first exercise is to complete a colour wheel using the three primary colours. Using the primaries, we will mix secondary colours. From the combination of the primary and secondary colours, we will mix tertiary colours. We will also mix the complementary colours to create an assortment of greys and muted colours. Attendees then select an already gridded-up image, create a corresponding grid on canvas paper and start sketching in their composition. Those feeling more confident about getting their proportions right without a grid, can do so. There will then be a quick demonstration showing the group how to create a quick tonal underpainting using a mix of burnt umber and water. The rest of the morning will be spent creating a limited-colour painting on top of your underpainting. This exercise will get us thinking about tonal values - your darks, lights and everything in between - using burnt umber, black and white. Lunch 12.30pm-1.15pm After lunch, participants will be given a demonstration on how to mix colour and will shortly after begin adding full colour to their paintings. This will take us to 4pm. For those that finish early there will be more exercises to follow. This workshop will give you a good knowledge of the materials you will need to carry on painting at home. You will gain an understanding of how to mix warm and cool colours as well as gain insights into the importance of contrasting values ensuring your paintings have good lights and darks. You will also hear lots during the workshop about technique and application so you can, in time, learn to develop your own unique style.
