“I paint and teach to gently awaken in myself and others that which has been lost, hidden or buried.”
Once one knows where to look, visual patterns of tonal value and colour become obvious. In order to create a clean, fresh, expressive painting, you can reduce the amount of ‘mucking about’ by clearly seeing whether the tonal value and/or colour are accurate before placing them on your canvas.
Join Lalita through a series of demos, exercises and studies (including ’40 stroke paintings’) to identify and practice the natural patterns in nature. Learn how to effectively choose, mix, and apply colour, as well as manage your palette and to translate tonal values into colour.
Enough canvas to complete 12 small studies (5”x7” and 8”x10”), which could be in the form of: A pad of canvas paper sheets, or loose gessoed canvas (rolled, and can cut to size in class), or large canvases on which we will ‘tape off’ smaller areas to do studies, or canvas boards or stretched canvases, 6 of each size. (If you are not sure which of the above would be best, I recommend one of the first 2 suggestions)
With respect to all other supplies, please just bring what you have. There is no need to buy anything new. However, if you do not have any supplies, the oil colours I will be using are the following. I have placed a star by the ‘must-have’s’ if you do not yet own any paint: Titanium white*, Yellow ochre*, Cad yellow medium*, Hansa yellow (or lemon yellow). Cereulean blue*, Cobalt blue, Ultramarine blue*, Payne’s Grey (optional). Burnt Sienna*, Cadmium red light, Cadmium red medium, Alizarin Crimson, Burnt Umber*, Raw Umber
