More than just “black and white” or “light and dark” the concept of “notan” leads us to look more closely at how we structure a painting or drawing. In this one-day workshop you will learn just what “notan” is and develop a feel for what makes a strong composition. Through several hands-on exercises you will learn to sense the dynamics of your composition and thereby gain control of that important foundation of your painting.
