In Andrew's workshop, you will learn to use color studies to your advantage to develop and enhance your paintings of the light from dusk to dawn. Working loosely and using color effectively, you will paint strong dynamic nocturnal paintings. Learning a few tricks to aid in your decision-making is part of the building of a painting, whether using limited color choices from transparent to opaque or, by building layers of color. Andrew will demonstrate examples of quick acrylic studies and will show how to develop them into finished paintings. References will be supplied but you may bring your own nocturnal/night photos.
