description of the summer painting course 'The Colour Revolution' The Seine at Bennecourt; Claude Monet 1868; 81,5 x 100,7 cm; Chicago, The Art Institute

The impressionist painters broke with academic tradition. This is most visible in the their treatmentof colour and light. Because of their fast painting techniques their were able to catch the colours at play and the light effects in nature. With just a few colours they captured the impression.

Their observation, that colours are not fixed but subject to influences of their surroundings and light was endorsed in the mid of the 19 century by new scientific research and the theory of colour of Eugène Chevreul.
Claude Monet (1840-1926)Colours used for this painting; The Seine at BennecourtBy means of clear practical instructions we are going to endorse the this colour theory. We will work in the city and nearby parcs/ landscape. You will learn the basics of painting with oil paints or acrylics if you prefer and try colour palettes of different impressionist painters.
The painting hours during the week course will be between the twilight zone of the morning and evening and maybe a nightscene to catch the different light temperature. A guided museumtour as well as an exchange with the other drawing and painting course in this week is possible!

Suitable for 'absolute beginners' as well as advanced who want to refresh their knowledge.
