Sun, May 28, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Sun, May 28, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

May 18, 2017 – Please note: The 11:00 AM–12:30 PM demonstration is now full and no further registration will be taken. Thank you for your interest! Note: there is still room in the 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM demonstration.

Learn how to recognize variations in values, dark to light when using a reference photo or still life.

Eileen will do a painting from a photo from beginning to end using the concept of finding the darks, the lights and discussing the value scale and showing how to lighten or darken a colour using the colour wheel concept and variations.

Blending and glazing with oil will also be discussed. Eileen hopes attendees will be enlightened on how much more interesting a painting can be when you pay attention to the value scale.

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Coquitlam or contact them at 604‑545‑0410 to register.
