Fundamentals of Painting
This is an inspiring and productive course for all levels of experience. A fun time set in a chilled out relaxed and creative environment. Learn something new each week and then build on it the next week. Damien can give you a lot of individual attention. Both Beginners and those already on their journey will find this extremely helpful. This course will be based on traditional painting techniques with some contemporary approaches applied to the genre. As well as covering a lot of ground, equally the focus will be on developing a solid understanding of colour theory, tonal relationships, proportion, and composition. Progressing to use these ideas to develop believable 3d forms on a 2d surface.
