Colour constancy

Please remember to find out what this term means and how it affects painting so that we can begin next class with a brief discussion on it.

We'll be painting a still life with fruit next Thursday so please remember to bring some in. Any fruit will do, even pumpkins, as we will be concentrating on a warm palette based on a yellow to orange/red gamut.

You can see how Cezanne used a variety of warm hues in this painting as well as a combination of brush strokes and contour lines. We'll also look at how we can modulate these tones with the use of a complementary colour.
