Composing your Painting (aka Basic Beginnings)

Hey! Did you know? There are still a couple of spaces available in Composing your Painting, running in February!

If you feel some confusion about the title of the course, that is understandable!
Since its launch, I have suspected that its original name implied Novices Only. But it is more inclusive than that. If you are an absolute beginner it would be a good place to start. But if you have tried painting, or even attended some classes in the past, this short-term tuition could give you a boost.

Course content

These sessions will give a basic understanding of composition.
We will examine the ways that Form, Tone and Colour contribute.

My belief is that these three elements underpin the structure of a painting and that decisions about them determine the “success” of the final product.
Paintings CAN be composed differently, but this approach provides some criteria for creating your painting and analysing it as you go along.

Just a note here about Colour. That is a huge subject on its own but we will tackle it from the angle of colour temperature to simplify it for this context and for me!

Course format

My classes are in-person and in the studio. Classes are very small to allow for lots of individual attention. For “Composing Your Painting” there are a maximum of three participants.
There are three sessions of three hours each in this course, all held in my studio in Brighton, South Australia.
