Complimentary Colour Layering with David Kilpatrick

Sat, November 18, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Sat, November 18, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

November 1, 2017 – Please note: This demonstration is full and no further registration will be taken. Thank you for your interest!

Join David in this demonstration that will show you all about colour layering.

Learn how to add layers of colour to your acrylic paintings to enhance it through the application of complementary colour to control temperature and tonal values. Enhance points of interest in the painting to subtly make the whole piece glow and hold the viewer's attention.

David will also briefly touch on how he uses Photoshop to create a composition using several reference photos. Learn how the image can be enhanced and adjusted to create the desired composition. See how you can plan for and prepare a canvas to create a scaled up version of the digital composition. On the screen David will show how you can zoom on the composition to see colours you did not know were there.

Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Langley or contact them at 604‑533‑0601 to register.

A life long artist I first started drawing animals as a young boy. Eagles, bears and the big cats were favourite subjects. When I first started painting thirty-one years ago those animals were still my initial inspiration. I have gone from painting just wildlife to subjects that deal with human nature, in particular our metaphysical connection to the Earth, as well as aspects of our multi-dimensional nature as human beings. My preferred medium is acrylic but I also create images in pencil and pastel and occasionally soapstone. I have a diploma in 3D computer modelling and put those skills to use primarily with the use of Photoshop and the creation of my compositions.
