Learn Painting Fundamentals & Picture Building Strategies (Through Winter Light & Shadow) 
Instructor: Chris Crosgrey
Date: Friday, November 9 - Saturday, November 10
Time: 9:30am-4pm
Location: The Chapel Gallery, 15 King Street, Bracebridge
Experience: All levels 
Cost: Members - $226 ($200 + $26 HST). Non-Members - $271.20 ($240 + $31.20 HST)
Material List: Available upon registration
Deadline to Register: November 2

This workshop equips you with a sensible two-step approach for any subject done in oil or acrylic, by first having you build a solid “underpainting” foundation upon which to apply colour. The under-painting resolves issues strictly of drawing, composition and “value”- clearly enough to struggle with all at one time! With these “structural” components settled and in place, the under-painting serves as a “blueprint” or template whereby the painter is now free to focus entirely on colour (and perhaps brushwork and edges). Here basic colour harmony strategies and paint application techniques (scumbling, wet in wet etc..) will be demonstrated. Participants work on a winter landscape exercise because winter (with light and shadow patterns) simplifies by reducing detail and can thereby teach us to see all painting subjects properly: as a small number of big pieces or main values.
