The second session will be here on:
Monday 18th January at 6PM UK time (10AM Paciifc, 1PM Eastern)
In this session, we’ll be doing a colour study of the same rose we did the value study of last week.
What we’ll be doing
Working in a very simplified way, we’ll endeavour to lay in a strong colour block in, with good hue and chroma. Once we have that, we’ll try to develop the study by bringing in more variation to the hue and chroma, and developing the smaller forms and details a little.
Please do have the colours mixed and the palette set up ahead of time. I won’t be going over mixing these colours again live in the session.
We’ll be working fairly expressively in this study, allowing our brushes to “speak” a litttle more.
What you’ll need
Surface: Prepare an 8 x 10 panel ahead of the session in exactly the same way as we began the first session: Lay on a couch of 50/50 linseed oil and solvent, paint over a light toner of raw umber/ivory black/white and then wipe the panel down till most of the oil is gone.
Grid the panel up and draw in a line block in of the rose.
Brushes: The same brushes as you used in session one will be fine. You’ll want mostly synthetic flats, about a half inch. A couple of soft, dry brushes will help with the blending. We’ll be getting a little more expressive with our brush strokes in this session too!
- Titanium White

Photo One – full colour photo (you already have this if you were at the last session)
Photo Two – grided version for drawing out (you already have this if you were at the last session)
Photo Three – a blurred version, removing the detail to (hopefuly) make it easier to ignore the details and see broad colour areas.
