12 January - Penny Wilton, Painting with a limited palette.
See the range of tones and depth in painting that can be achieved with a limited palette. Penny will bring photos for reference or you can bring your own - it needs to be something in grey tones, a misty landscape or a still life or portrait in black and white. The medium can be acrylic or watercolour; you will need a scrap of paper to try out tones, & a larger piece of paper for painting on, tissue for cleaning brushes, maybe masking fluid for watercolours, brushes, water pots etc. For acrylic or watercolour you can use same colours: ultramarine, burnt sienna, and white if using acrylic.
