Melbourne Light and Color Class

  • Gundam Universe Australia (map)

The class will run Saturday and Sunday, April 29-30, 2017 from 9am - 7pm both days at Gundam Universe (

Arcane Paintwork's
Light and Color

I recommend everyone bring the following with them:

Food and Drink (we will have some short breaks for eating and stretching)
Rinse Water Cup

and whatever else you may need to be comfortable. 

I will supply everyone in class with a model to paint during class.  

In the class we will go over lighting and atmoshpere on models, some blending techniques in case anyone needs help, color theory and how to push contrast. 

This is a class that is aimed at bettering the current level of the students. I will not be teaching you my way of painting, as everyone has their own style. Instead, I will be teaching theory you can apply to your own style and help to push everyone out of their comfort zone. I will be available for demos if needed and questions throughout class. 

I utilize a PowerPoint presentation to introduce the different concepts in class. There will be breaks in between lecture topics to allow the students some time to do some color mixing exercises in order to better understand the concepts being discussed. Once the presentation is complete, students will have a chance to think about how they want to paint their model, prime them outside and come back and start working. I encourage students to discuss ideas among one another and ask as many questions of me as needed.  

I would like everyone to have a finished bust by the end of class that you can take home as an example to show you what you are capable of. 

We will run a fairly tight schedule so I would recommend everyone bringing food with them. The Magic Vault does have snacks and drinks available in store and there are a few places to get food nearby. We will have some short breaks for eating and stretching our legs. 

The class will run for 20 hours.
