The development of painting techniques such as form, space, depth, relief, color usage, composition and personal dialogues with your work are the focus for the course. Attention is given to transforming the painting and drawing. Especially the painting on small and large (100 x 70cm) is applicable. Furthermore there is painting with charcoal, pastels and clay. In agreement with the group every now and then there will be painting from a live model. This stimulates the usage of figurative or abstract figuration shapes in your free paintings.
