In this session tutor and artist Sheila Moylan looks at Colour Theory & Practice and explores how the great masters used colour in their work.

You will learn

  • how to interpret the colour wheel
  • identify and use primary, secondary and tertiary colours
  • use colour to create atmospheres of warmth, sunlight, darkness and mystery…

To participate in the workshop you will need to set up a simple still life using fruit / vegetables/ flowers that allow you to focus on the colour of the objects. Email us an image of your still life so Sheila can assist you during the session.

Materials needed:

  • H pencil (allows you to apply colour without smudging)
  • colour pastels or pencils
  • drawing paper

Book a place on the Colour Theory & Practice workshop to receive lots of advice and where to go for further development.
