Expressive Colour in the Landscape with Paul Macklin

October 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Bring your landscapes to life with dynamic, bold and expressive colour.
Do you want a deeper understanding of the dynamics of colour in landscape painting?
Imagine skilfully harnessing colour to amplify the expression, mood and impact of your artwork?
Are you hungry to experiment, take risks, and expand the edge of your colour comfort zone?
Expressive Colour in the Landscape investigates colour, from basics to bold expressions.
We explore…
• Four key dimensions of colour, how to see them, paint them and exaggerate them.
• The power of colour contrasts, colour balance and colour harmony
• How colour tells us stories in the landscape and how to use that in your painting
• Saying more with less – limited palettes
• Transitioning from representational colour to expressive colour
• Working from a photo towards a finished, colour, semi-abstract landscape painting.
You’ll learn techniques for working from both photos and life and the power of colour as a
dynamic tool to amplify what you see adding emotion and energy to your work.
Expand your art making into the wonderful world of expressive colour landscapes.

Perfect for…
• Intermediate painters wanting to extend their use of expressive colour
• Painters who’ve always wanted to bring more colour and expression into their work
• Artists who find colour hard to handle and want a few practical principles to guide their colour explorations.
