I recently taught a painting class called "Painting the Drama of Light and Shadow". A study of the time honoured method of Chiaroscuro. They were a terrific group of ladies, with a lot of talent! They were also hard workers who pushed themselves onto the next painting with enthusiasm. Here is a great group shot on the last night with a variety of different images. Some are complete and some are still in progress, but all are looking might fine!
Rita is working on her value underpainting, which is almost complete and she will be ready to start adding colour.
Catriona is painting liliacs, and learning to give the impression of clusters of flowers through value and texture.
Anita is enhancing her pears, which really glowed, through the application of multiple layers of transparent colour. They were good enough to eat!
I always enjoy teaching at Monterey Centre in Oak Bay and plan to be back next Fall with a fuller roster of classes. I hope to see there!
