Understanding Light and Atmosphere

This NEW one day course is an ideal follow on from our working with colour course. As with photography, having a basic understanding of how your eyes see light and colour, the colour spectrum and what happens when light hits an object, can be helpful in capturing the right atmosphere for your painting. 

The differences in a midday landscape versus a sunset on the sea, creating the right emotional narrative in your portrait. This course will help to unlock some of this mystery and show you how to apply this within your painting.
