One way of using colour in landscape painting is to exaggerate the intensity or chroma of the seasonal landscape colours. It is much easier as you work on a painting to tone down colour intensity, than it is to brighten a dull painting. In this workshop we will explore many ways of using colour to create powerful paintings. We will be learning lessons from El Greco, Matisse, the Fauvists, and contemporary practitioners.
