This course is perceptually based. It is taught with oil colors and is meant as a general introduction to perceptual painting for students who both have and have not had prior painting experience. Students are introduced to painting materials, paint handling (both additive and subtractive), the concept of creating a coherent illusionistic space, unity of light and color, the concept of cool and warm colors and their spatial properties, composition, paint quality and surface tension. Still life set-ups are used in the first half of the semester and the model in the second half. Students who competently complete this course are expected to be prepared in the following semester to find and explore their own subject matter and painting interests.
