Light and dark are two elementary aspects in painting that play a crucial role in the composition of a painting. In the workshop, I would like to give a deeper insight into this important topic.
We will explore the effects of light and shadow in sketches and large-scale works on paper. The field of tension can be explored in black and white or in colour, allowing for a wide palette of colour nuances.
In the guided exercises, we will look at the most important properties of light and dark and use surfaces and lines to gain a better understanding of these two poles of painting. With this summer course "Painting Processes - Light and Shadow" I would like to give a comprehensive introduction to this fascinating theme and offer the opportunity to broaden our understanding of the effect of light and shadow in painting. The course is suitable for beginners as well as advanced students.
