 (Term 2 for 10 weeks)

Tutor: Rick Cochrane


Building on the previous Fundamentals programs, we will progress through a series of skills development exercises.  Students will work on their own projects simultaneously apply their newly acquired understanding of these processes.  

The program will include:

  • colour mixing 
  • uses of brushes, pallets, media and substrates
  • understanding light and tone
  • using warm and cool colours, dark and light tones
  • making acrylic work like oil
  • composition and painting in layers
  • underpainting using a grisaille and glazing
  • understanding focus, tonal shapes, negative spaces and convergence.

Rick will provide one on one phone contact with each participant ahead of the term commencement
