The second live session for February 2021 will be here on
Wednesday 17th February
6PM UK time (10AM Pacific, 1PM Eastern)
What we’ll be doing
In this session, we’ll be wrapping up our squash paintings from the last few sessions.
All our paintings will probably be at different stages, so the specific areas you want to work on may be different. I’ll be workoing mostly on refining the leaves, some fine details and attempting to harmonise all the disparate elements into a painting that hangs together!
What you’ll need
The painting you began in the last session (or a re-done version of it)
Linseed oil, to apply a selective couch over the areas you’ll want to work on
A variety of brushes: Hog bristle filbers in various sizes and soft synthetic flats will be be best.
- titanuim white
- ivory black
- raw umber
- cadmium yellow
- permanent or cadmium orange
- yellow ochre
- quinacridone rose (or other blue red. If you don’t have one, cad red or similar)
- transparent red oxide (burnt umber if you don’t have that)
- Phthalo green – Winsort and Newton Winsor Green (Yellow shade is ideal, but any phthalo green should dpo, e.g. viridian)
(These are the same photos from last sessions, so there’s no need to download them if you already have them)
