Initiation to the colour wheel .
Colour theory
Colour exercises.
Importance of shadows.
Shadow colours
Reflected light
Values, intensity and use of compliment colours.
Soft edges versus hard edges.
How to create harmony.

Tutors Comment: Art should be an individual statement, the tools (theory) I will be giving you are aids for your own personal development,they will serve to take the frustration and anxiety away from such a special moment which is painting.

If the weather does not permit we will work in the studio from still life's.

Still life normally takes up only one days work, in that case we will incorporate tile painting with typical Portuguese designs.

180 Euros per person

If you choose to have materials included (canvas board, and acrylics) it will be an additional 20 Euros.
