We will cover the key principles of representational painting, starting from the intrinsic link between color and value towards an in-depth exploration of color relationships and the dynamics of color temperature. This approach will provide a solid understanding of the complexities of color and will ultimately free you to paint your own way.

Classes are structured in blocks of 4 sessions designed to build progressively on each other. Each session starts with an overview of the process followed by a demonstration diving deeper into a particular aspect of alla prima painting. Each week can also work as stand-alone units for those who would prefer to drop-in.
