Workshop: ‘Painting Outward’ – Colour Theory in Practice, part of the Spirit Hawk Eye: Native American Cultural Season
July 25, 2015 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Comanche artist Nocona Burgess describes his approach to colour as ‘painting outward’: painting with vibrant pigment onto a dark, rather than a light, background. Join him to explore contrasts between vivid colour and dark surfaces, and learn ways of applying colour and glazing on a dark background.
