It’s Time to Paint!

I’m taking another art class at the Guelph School of Art – Open Studio with Jessica Masters – and it’s fantastic. Jessica and I have been talking a lot about colour. All facets of the topic:

  • Using temperature to play with depth
  • Colour mixing basics (I need this!)
  • Ways to bring a painting past the 95% mark: using unifying colours, punching up  contrast, and using warm and cool colours to enhance adjacent colours

Here is an in-process shot of what I’ve been working on:
