“We’ll study from, and do a copy of, one of my favourite landscape painters. Saturday (Day 1) will be an underpainting, and Sunday (Day 2), will be the final layer. Close attention will be put on colour and especially tone (value). Not only that, but there’ll also be an emphasis on understanding why those colours and values are used throughout the picture, in order to create a sense of light, depth, atmosphere and focus. It won’t necessarily be about finishing the painting, but more about trying to create an image of accurate colour and value relationships.”
