Painting The Night - Cool Light, Warm Shadows Workshop
250 Eglinton Ave W
A different approach, this workshop plays with the reversal of the usual warm highlights and cool blue shadows. Great technique for painting night scenes. Cool light adds mystery; the mulling darks of warm shadows muffle, quietening into darkness. You will learn to mix blue violet vibrant glints of light and warm ambered rust and eggplant violets for shadows. All levels.
Supplies for this workshop: your usual oil (no solvent) or acrylic painting kit and gear and one canvas size of choice, additionally primed in advance (optional to tone the ground – white is great). The subject matter is your choice entirely. It can be landcape or urbanscape but equally it can be still life or figurative, a scene in the dark where lighting is minimal and the sense of night is palpable.
