August 1, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

Participants will do an under painting of a photo of their choice in either raw umber or burnt sienna acrylic paint and gesso. I will demonstrate planning composition, contrasts and values in the under painting. Then participants will do their under painting using at least five values of acrylic on canvas with a gesso brush or other 1 1/2”-2” brush. After lunch break we will paint over underpainting with color adding contrasts and detail.
