Monday 21st March
What we’ll be doing
We’re kicking off this workshop with the first subject, a single daffodil.
We’re going to be taking a close look at the process of choosing and mixing the colours we’ll need to paint this daffodil well.
We’ll also be going through how to mix these colours, whether you have the student Munsell book or the big one (or perhaps only the value scale!)
We will be doing some painting, but just sketches to help with exploration of brush strokes and the creation of form – we won’t be doing a full painting. That’s session two 🙂
What you’ll need
Palette and palette knife
A painting surface for sketching on. I’ll be using an 8 x 10 inch ampersand panel, but you can use oil painting paper or whatever you like.
Medium: Linseed oil and a solvent
- lead (or titanium) white
- a green yellow – cadmium yellow lemon. If you dont’ have this, lemon yellow or perhaps hansa yellow
- cadmium yellow (ca yellow light if you’re using Winsor and Newton paint)
- permanent orange (cadmium orange will get you close if you dont’ have it)
- green gold (there’s really no substitute for this)
- transparent red oxide (no substitute for this either really)
- raw umber
- ivory black
Brushes: flat synthetics and perhaps hog bristles. A soft synthetic brush for blending
I’ve added some infor to the main course site that gives some background on how we’ll be choosing the colours
