COLOR WHEEL & COLOR AS TONE

A very useful perception to add to your mental toolkit for painting is the ability to see COLOR AS TONE’.  (‘Tone” can also be called tonal value, value, light-dark on gray scale) . The ‘lights’,  or light tones, create piccolo sparkle, ‘mids’ create violin richness/sublety, ‘darks’ create tuba gravitas.  Deduct the lights and you have somber/moody. Deduct the mids and you have a kind of annunciation, readable from afar, but not all that interesting up close. Deduct the darks and you have ‘ethereal’, pixies dancing at twilight. Together and they give a full orchestra – but there is still the problem of ‘dominance’ – equal amounts of piccolo, violin and tuba are boring.

Painting  – 8 Wednesday Afternoons, January 17th to March 7th, 2018, 1:30 – 4:00

The course will use both watercolour and/or acrylics. Choose one or try both. Everything is demonstrated and taught step-by step:

Part One –  will focus on painting projects that emphasize colour , tonality and design. Those with painting experience may use any preferred water-based medium (watercolour or acrylics). Those with little or no experience may prefer acrylics to begin with.

Part Two – will focus a little more on watercolour projects, though, if people prefer, they can continue with acrylics.  We will work on paintings emphasizing form and space, through colour, light and shadow.

We will paint still-life, villages, landscapes, mountains, lakes and streams. Totally new projects are explored each time the course runs, so take or retake this course to begin or refresh your skills. All levels are welcome.

COLOR WHEEL & COLOR AS VALUE

A very useful perception to add to your mental toolkit for painting is the ability to see color as ‘value’.  The ‘lights’ create piccolo sparkle, ‘mids’ create violin richness/sublety, ‘darks’ create tuba gravitas.  Deduct the lights and you have somber/moody. Deduct the mids and you have a kind of annunciation, readable from afar, but not all that interesting up close. Deduct the darks and you have ‘ethereal’, pixies dancing at twilight.
