After Julian Merrow Smith. Tone

This week we will duplicate Julian Merrow Smith's 'Sabatier and pear slice', oil on canvas.

Painting in black and white for the classes for SARAH Hall and Orrell Park.


As an exercise photocopy a colour painting and using only black and white paint produce a copy. Alternatively do the same exercise from a colour picture and interpret it in black and white only. Aim to use around 5 tones including black and white and keep it simple.

Bluecoat postponed.

Unfortunately the event at the Bluecoat is now postponed due to the inclement weather and will now take place on June 23rd. All the other details remain the same. Sorry about that, the one thing we have no control over is the expected high winds, a bad idea for an outdoor event with gazebos. We’ll hopefully see you in two weeks.
