Next workshop: How to Paint White
How is it possible to paint different objects together when they’re all ‘white’…against a ‘white’ background….on a ‘white’ table top – and how can you make snow look convincing without resorting to dull, neutral grey for shadows? The answer is that ‘white’ is made up of every colour and by applying subtle colours alongside each other, or gently over-laying them, exciting, luminous surfaces can be conveyed. Be prepared for a challenge! N.B. You may like to bring one or two of your own ‘snowy’ photographs from which to work, although there will be a large selection available.
