This studio course focuses on painting from observation, with specific reference to both historical and contemporary painting practices. Using both acrylic and oil painting techniques, students will work on a series of projects that explore the formal properties of colour, tone and composition. Through observation and description of still life and physical space, students should develop critical painting skills. Studio work will be supported by presentations that explore examples of observational painting with accompanying class discussions about content, technique, and style.
