Drawing for the Not so Terrified- Still Life and Composition
Wednesday, June 2 and 9, 10am to 4pm.
Hosted by Atelier Crafers, 1 Cox Place Crafers
ONLY 6 Places available
The art of composition is most easily understood in the context of still life painting. But before you start to paint, it’s essential to work out your composition in black and white. And balanced tonal values are a vital part of good composition. We’ll look at various artists’ approach to composition, from the most abstract to the most realistic, and analyse the reasons for their relative success. A number of different still life subjects will be attempted, using a variety of drawing media.
