For the realist painter, the accurate depiction of surface texture is of vital importance. Given the vast range of colours presented both by nature and manufactured objects plus the effects of the ever changing light, the depiction of a wide range of textures presents a considerable challenge.
Based on the book Depicting the Colours in Textures, this mini course will take you through 20 exercises covering a wide range of textures. invaluable for the realist painter.
The ‘mini’ courses provide a series of exercises based on the paintings in our Colour Notes series. The exercises are completed following detailed information in each book. Each finished exercise becomes a painting in its own right and builds into a full colour mixing reference. This is definitely NOT a ‘painting by numbers’ approach but a program designed to teach ‘colour mixing and use through practical exercises.
The mini course is presented in an attractive presentation binder with protective translucent sleeves and consists of: Exercise sheets printed on 140 lb acid/free watercolour paper or acid/free textured oil painting paper. A printed laminated practice mixing palette and full instructions.
The mini course is available in two versions:
- For watercolours, gouache and thinly applied acrylics
- For oils or heavily applied acrylics
