TONE: Creating and using the Grey Scale
Understanding how to use the Black and White Tonal Scale is one of the fundamental rules of painting. Knowing how one tone affects another tone will increase the painters skill for all painting whether classical traditional work or contemporary abstract. The use of tone is the artists’ friend and the skilled artist has then the knowledge to manipulate the painting to create depth and spatial effect – you will be better able to paint what you see rather than create ‘the happy accident’ and not know how you achieved an effect.
DATES: Saturday 19 & Sunday 20 May
TIMES: 10.00am – 4.00pm
COST: $285.00 includes 2 day workshop tuition and some materials for creating tonal chart plus home cooked lunch and refreshments.
Jenni will demonstrate how to use the classical technique of tone (Max Meldrum) to paint what you see using black and white to create a formal chart to use with all your paintings. Day One – Demonstration and creating your own Tonal Chart to use in any medium.
You will be able to understand more about how the grey scale works and setup your own subject and use the created tonal chart to help accurately paint the shape and tone thereby helping to paint the essence of the chosen subject quickly.
A Country cooked lunch and all refreshments will be provided. Students will be given the canvas and paper to create the Black and White tonal scale. Please bring your chosen medium – oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolour pastel or pencil or purchase quality materials from the studio.
