About this event

Term 1 Underpainting

The first term will be divided between two types of underpainting, the first half “imprimatura” using one pigment and the second half “Grisaille” using two pigments.

Term 2 Limited Palette

The second term will focused on gaining control over the limited colour palette. We can expand our palette once we’ve learned to use the palette effectively.

Term 3 Full Palette

In this term we will be exploring the Full Colour Palette which has a much broader range of colour. It lends itself well to the Alla Prima style of painting giving it a fresh vibrant look.

We have learned from previous terms that the study of Masterpieces are the quickest way to develop our eye. In this term we will be looking at some of the modern masters of the Alla Prima Technique to help us deal with the complexities of a full palette.

Through studying the masters and applying what we have learned with a portrait model we can start to develop our own style as a portrait artist.

In the last half of the term we will spend some extra time producing an exhibition piece for the  end of the year show.
