The fourth session will be here at:
6PM UK time (1PM Eastern, 10AM Pacific, check your time zone here)
Monday 23rd August
What we’ll be Doing
Having investigated the colours of the the roses for our final composition, and practiced the approach on a smaller and more simple piece, we’ll now spend the next three session working on our final piece.
The rough outline of the next three sessions is this:
- Session Four: Drawing out, main colour shapes, softening and selective edges
- Session Five: Further developing the two Juliet roses, using Munsell to make sure our colours are carried over accurately
- Session Six: Finishing the piece (note: if poeople generally feel they’re far enough along with their piece, I had also considered using this session to go over in more detail anything that people felt wasn’t clear or wanted more depth on. If there’s time for this, I’ll poll you on what we might cover)
Things may change a little depenending on how the live sessions go.
What you’ll need
Please prepare your panel with the couch and draw out the composition a little before we’re due to start.
Please also have the following colours pre-mixed – this will help us cover more ground on teh actual painting in teh session.
Surface: a 9 x 12 Ampersand gessobord or similar surface. If you’re working to a different size, try to make sure that the aspect ratio is the same or the grid will result in distortions in the drawing when you draw it out
Brushes: The ones you’ve been using so far: mostly flat synthetics, some hog filberts if you like to use them for the background, a large, soft brush for blending
- Titanium white
- Flake (lead) white
- Cadmium yellow
- Bright Yellow Lake
- Yellow Ochre
- Quinacridone Rose
- Transparent red oxide
- Raw umber
- Ivory Black
- Phthalo green
Medium: Linseed oil and a solvent of your choice (I’ll be using pure gum turps)
