Working in a suggested limited palette you will be provided with an image of a painting* to follow step by step to create your masterpiece painting!
Each phase of the painting will be demonstrated and instructed step by step. You will learn prospective, light and shadow, composition balance, harmony by using a limited palette, drama in the landscape, the power of the sky and atmosphere.
This type of paint-along is far more advanced with the emphasis on learning how to truly paint with an understanding of design and composition and color harmony.
With each step being demonstrated you will learn to work your painting as a whole. Each color mix will be explained so that you will learn how to make many variations from just a few colors including all greens.
You will also gain insight into how to capture light and shadow in your work … the excitement of light adds tremendously to a painting…learning to make greens will also give you greater harmony in your work - avoiding the “light green/dark green ” 2 shades that can make paintings look flat…instead you will learn how to vary the shades and create much more depth.
The limited palette consists of the following colors:
Thalo Blue/ Green Shade
Transparent Brown Oxide
Cad. Yellow Med
Yellow Oxide (not Ochre)
Quinacridone Burnt Orange
Cad. Red Light
Cad. Red Med
All these colors are available in Golden Brand - the very highest quality
A Masterson's Stay-Wet-Palette is strongly recommended - size 12x16
Use a higher quality canvas/linen and prepare the surface with gesso
Or try aluminum which will give your painting great luminosity - you will be shown how to prepare that surface. ( Bring heavy grit sandpaper)
Angle brushes also work very well - recommended are the Princeton Catalyst long handle brushes available at Jerrys-Art-Arama
* Image of painting is used for copying only - and are not meant for using in art competitions or gallery shows - it is for learning.
All levels are welcome!
