About the Course
Janet will talk about her work and methods and lead you through her process to create a large scale still life painting using acrylic and pastel. She will provide a range of considered objects to create a still life on different levels, with the aim of creating a composition which will draw the viewer through the painting. You will also be considering colour theory and balance of colour to create a successful painting.
