Session two of the workshop will be here at:
6PM UK time (2PM Eastern, 11AM Pacific – check your timezone here)
Monday 28th March
What we’ll be doing
Now that we’ve gone through in detail how to choose and mix the colours, and also covered an approach to painting alla prima based on hsape and relationships, in this session we’ll be putting everything together in order to create a finished painting of the daffodil.
What you’ll need
Please have the main colours we mixed in the first live session pre-mixed and ready to go.
- 10Y 8.5/2 (light)
- 5Y 5/2 (shadow)
- between 10Y and 7.5Y 8/6 (light)
- 5Y 5/6 (shadow)
- 2.5YR 6/16
Refer to the last session for info on how to mix these colours with either the big or the student Munsell book.
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 don’t have it)
- green gold (there’s really no substitute for this)
- raw umber
- ivory black
- Phthalo green – I’ll be using Winsor and Newton Winsor green (yellow shade) but any phthalo green should be fine
Brushes: flat synthetics and perhaps hog bristles. A soft synthetic brush for blending
