Acrylic Painting 2 – Colour, Pattern and Paul Gauguin – Online
This class is delivered online with limited seats for a highly interactive experience with your instructor.
In this session we will focus in the use of colour and pattern in painting while using Paul Gauguin’s work to guide us.
In the first class we will look at colour and its importance in painting. We will examine not only Gauguin’s, but other artists paintings to see how they have utilized colour to add intensity to images. We will then create our own paintings that focus on the use of colour.
During the second class, we delve into pattern and explore how different artists use this principle in their paintings. We will then do a painting project that focuses on pattern.
For the third class, we look at a few of Gauguin’s iconic works and students will have the opportunity to learn his techniques while replicating one of his paintings.
In the last two classes, students will bring in their own reference image and we will go over composition, colour choice, editing and image transfer. Students will have the opportunity to work on this painting for a total of 4 hours.
