As used by Leonardo Da Vinci and Carrivagio chiaroscuro literally means ‘light dark‘ and can create dramatic effects especially when darkness is contrasted with human flesh.
Join us in a studio prepared with blackout drapes and dramatic lighting to emulate this stunning effect used in painting for centuries.
Easels boards, paper, charcoals, pencils oil/chalk pastels and acrylics are provided. You might prefer to light your board, especially with the dramatic lighting we are planning, so bring a clip on light for your personal use.
Sheila’s Top Tip: For those who have not done this before I suggest using the black paper provided and working with white pastel/chalk to build layers of light on the darkness!
