Glowing Still Life

New! Weekend Watercolour Series
James Koll
Saturdays, May 11 - 25
1pm - 4pm

Join artist/instructor James Koll and learn to create still life scenes in watercolour that radiate with luminosity. Through the fine tradition of the still-life genre, James will share strategies to break down this often challenging medium into manageable steps, with emphasis on the tried-and-true techniques for getting consistent gratifying results.

The course will focus on methods of portraying convincing form and texture, and using light and shadow to enhance the subject. Develop your observational and compositional skills while achieving an effective arrangement of dark, light, and mid-tone values.  Learn simple tricks to mix colours with confidence.
The first Saturday will cover the basic techniques, skills and concepts through various exercises, with the later weeks leading up to a final still life project that will incorporate the skills covered.  James’ teaching approach includes plenty of one-on-one guidance to complement a step-by-step follow-along format, and this course is suitable for all levels.
