Next week is a full student paint session.
No demo. You will be working on your own masterpieces.
I have loaded images and a process file onto the Demo page of this blog for the tree sketch I worked on in class. That demo was in acrylic paints and so the instructions for paint additives are based on that medium/not oils in this instance; the theory and process remain the same tho. It was rewarding to hear your enthusiastic feedback. Please let your friends know about my class and approach/intermediate to advanced level. We have room to add more students. The more the merrier.
The next demo will be covering the topic of brush strokes. Although this is truly a skill that develops over time, you have asked for some guidance. I certainly will be able to give you some pointers: how to finesse your brush strokes, which brushes give you what effect, and stroke direction that either flattens or adds the illusion of form. Glad to help.
