Painting Basics to Learn

Posted by | May 18, 2012 | 0 Comments

I’ve seen an intensive painting basic skills building class that offers the following training. I wish I could join such an class. Unfortunately I haven’t found a class like this in my area.

  • efficient lay out of palette and workspace
  • composition and design considerations
  • tips for accurate drawing
  • effective colour mixing of both neutral and saturated colour (with key ideas about how to achieve exactly the colour you are looking for)
  • the importance of being able to see relatively in terms of both colour and value, and how to use this as an invaluable tool to create paintings that breathe with authenticity
  • effective paint handling and brushwork (applying focused, deliberate marks on the canvas rather than a random “figure it out as I go” approach).
