The third live session will be here on:
Monday 25th January
6PM UK time (10AM Pacific, 1PM Eastern)
What we’ll be Doing
In this session, we’ll do a second colour study, this time of the orange rose.
This rose is tricky! There’s a lot of copmplexity in it that we’ll need to simplify down as much as we can in order to create a sense of form.
Then we’ll carefully build the form back in until we feel we have a rose.
Please have these colours mixed and ready before the session starts.
What you’ll need
Surface: Prepare an 8 x 10 panel ahead of the session in exactly the same way as we began the other sessions: 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. The oil layer needs to be VERY thin!
Grid the panel up and draw in a line block in of the rose.
Brushes: The same brushes as you used in the other sessions will be fine. You’ll want mostly synthetic flats, about a half inch. A couple of soft, dry brushes will help with the blending.
- Titanium White
- Cadmium Yellow
- Yellow ochre
- Quinacridone rose
- Tranparent red oxide
- Raw umber
- Ivory black
- Phthalo green
(you might want the bright yellow lake too, just for the greens of the leaves)
Photo Three – value only with a value scale, in case you want to practice that first – always a good idea!
