Over the last two years I have found my favorite painting class. I have an amazing teacher and the students in the class are all fabulous painters. I learn so much from them and it's great to try new techniques and new subjects. So fun! Here's a behind-the-scenes peak at my weekly happy place.
Right now we are working on using underpaintings as a value study, in addition to laying out the composition. We're using yellow as light, purple as the darkest dark, and either the warm or the cool side of the color wheel in the middle. Both of my examples show the warm side.
Next week we will be painting over this larger still life! I'm excited to see how it turns out. Stay tuned!
