September 29 Recap
T.C. Steele - 'Beech Trees'

Painting CLOUDS & ROCKS lessons & demos
  • Finishing is an important step that is often affected by life circumstances, attention span & passion for the project. Pushing yourself to go one more step can make a difference
  • Using various techniques at the end to add texture:  bristle brush smashed on the floor to make flayed bristles, chop affect with sides of brush, scooping the paint as if your brush were a spoon, heavier lights can create a shelf and add more light. 
  • Clouds: draw the shapes first with M's and often flattened bottom. Mass in sky & use circular strokes as you press straight in with a fairly firm filbert!!
  • Rocks: don't make pillows, keep your edges sharp for most rocks unless they are in streams. Use a palette knife, look for interesting color and bump it up. Watch those dull gray or brown rocks.
Supplies:  Your choice - pencil, charcoal, pastel, oil, acrylic or watercolor
Weekly exercises may be done in a sketchbook, on canvas paper.
No color mixing required all exercises will be on drawing & value.
