Discover the excitement of perceptual painting with Christine Lafuente. This 5-week course relates the elements of perceptual painting to an understanding of light source: back-lit, side-lit and front-lit compositions. Working from observation, interior or still-life set-up, learn how to create form and space through drawing. Explore drawing for painting, tone, temperature, palette organization and how to key a palette in response to the direction of the light source. Be prepared to rearrange studio furniture and move around in your personal painting space.
