The Impressionists Use of Colour

Price: Regular price £55.00 Sale

Tutor - Francesca Berlingieri Maxwell

Sunday 9 June, 11am - 4pm

Explore the use of colours in the style of the Impressionists and learn to create an overall atmosphere using the interplay of colours between objects. Cezanne claimed that, 'painting is recording colour sensation'. Following this concept, learn to apply hues at their purest and without softening or delimitating shapes. Analyse light, its effect on composition and apply this to create a still life using acrylic and pastels on paper.
