Workshop Details

Painting Shadows in Watercolour

Cast shadows are luminous and generally stronger than you think. If you paint shadows as a glaze of blue or violet then this workshop will completely change your approach for the better. Throughout the day you will learn how to mix shadow colours for any given scenario in your painting. You will learn how to achieve the most appropriate value to create contrast and feeling of light in your work. I will also show you a neat trick to make your shadows glow instead of lying flat and lifeless across your painting. Following some basic exercise work you will have the opportunity to watch me paint shadows in context of a demo painting before embarking on your own work.

About the Artist

Paul Talbot-Greaves is a professional landscape painter who works in both watercolour and acrylic. His work reflects the rugged scenery of the landscape, either in the context of wild places or in the nature of the South Pennine landscape where he lives. Here, he draws my inspiration from the remains of the pre-industrial era where crumbling enclosure walls and ancient pastures still survive. It is this or the open mountain and moorland terrain that inspires him to explore the spirit of historical connections using layers of colour, texture, shapes and patterns applied with energy and feeling.

Paul writes for The Artist magazine and have four practical art books published to date as well as contributing to many others. Throughout his painting life he has been made a Companion of the International Guild of Artists, an Associate of the British Watercolour Society, a Professional Associate and advisory panellist of the SAA, president of the Halifax Art Society, as well as an advisory panellist for Artists and Illustrators magazine.

Palette

Kitchen roll
