Block 1 | Spring Flowers | 10.30am - 1pm

Week 1: 16 September - colour theory

Week 2: 23 September - colour harmony

Week 1: Colour theory

Starting with the colour wheel, Suzanne will guide you through how to mix colours, learn about the relationship of different colours, such as primary colours against secondary colours. You will learn how they work together and how to contrast by using complementary colours. From this you will then be able to mix colours faster and more efficiently.

Taking what we have learned from the colour wheel you will create a simple study of a spring flower (daffodil or primrose) and create your image using complementary or primary against secondary colours. Working on acrylic paper Suzanne will take you through a step-by-step process from sketching out your flowers through building up your painting to a finished piece.

Week 2 - Colour harmony

Working with our colour wheel, Suzanne will guide you through analogous colour schemes. These are colours that are next to each other on the colour wheel such as blue, blue-green, green or green, yellow-green, yellow. When used together they create harmony. Analogous colour schemes are often found in nature, and are harmonious and pleasing to the eye. Use of a limited palette will also create a sense of harmony.

Working with roses you will create a simple study using either colour harmony or a limited palette. Working on acrylic paper Suzanne will take you through a step-by-step process on how to build up your painting.

Class sizes are kept small so that Suzanne can give you the support you need to get the most from the course.

What to bring:

Please bring brushes and a paint palette with you. If you don't have your own, we can supply these initially and recommend what to buy for future classes. All other materials are provided, and refreshments are also included.


While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Still Life and Flower Painting Course: Block 1 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
