Color Harmony in Tonal PaintingWith Christine Lafuente
March 2–3, 2024
10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Tonal painting is the creation of form and dimension by modulating value of color from light mass to shadow mass. Color harmony is created through an understanding of temperature shift from light to dark.
Working from the still life, this oil painting workshop relates the concepts of tone, temperature, and key. Students will be instructed how to mix oil color, organize their palette mixtures, and maintain color harmony, while painting wet-into-wet. Please make sure to bring a large palette and a high-quality mixing knife. Mornings will include lecture and demonstration, with afternoons devoted to painting and individual instruction.
All levels are welcome, some experience drawing and painting from observation is recommended.
