Figure in Space - an exploration of colour
Dominic McIvor is an Edinburgh based Artist and one of our Paintbox Tutors, currently teaching our Beginners Course and one to one mentoring sessions. Dominic studied at Grays School of Art and makes work that explores thought provoking responses towards the everyday.
Dominic exhibits widely throughout the UK.
This course will delve into the fascinating subject of colour! Using the figure in space as the subject matter, the days will be split into studying both cool and warm palettes, with a drive to strengthen thoughts on tone in colour. A model will be incorporated in a dynamic set up each day, relevant to each colour exercise.
Developing tone, presence of line, atmosphere and also considering paint application, will help to broaden thinking and understanding. Students will leave with a both a body of studies and also resolved works.
The work of relevant artist’s Milton Avery and Henri Matisse will be explored for inspiration, and allow you to put your knowledge into practice!
