Painting Light & Shadow Workshop

I will be teaching 2 classes at the Pumphouse in August. The first is one on light and shadow.

Renoir said “No shadow is black, it always has a colour.” In this class, you will learn how to mix paint to capture the dramatic differences between light and shadow, brightness and dullness, vibrancy and paleness. Using a very limited palate, we will focus on colour mixing to help you to capture the colours present in nature at different times of day and under different lighting conditions. This two-day workshop will include colour theory instruction and simple exercises, and the chance to complete a small painting building on these colour principles from start to finish.

For more information or to sign up for the class, contact the Pumphouse ( or 905 468 5455) or feel free to email me directly through the contact form on this website.
