FIGURE & FLOWER – PAINTING & DRAWING
Start off your summer with a week of painting the figure and flowers. All new set-up and model for the whole week. Paint one painting or a new painting every day. Instruction is individual and will incorporate solid drawing and painting techniques for gaining a deeper understanding of proportions, anatomical landmarks, tonal values, edges, color and abstract relationships. You may work in oils, acrylic, pencil, charcoal, watercolor, or pastel. The pose will be set in-the-round and viewable from all angles. You can practice painting the whole figure with the flowers or only the portrait.
You do not need to buy everything on this list. Only buy materials that relate to the medium you plan to work with, or bring your own basic supplies.
Canvas: a variety of sizes—panels or stretched canvas; all canvases should be toned with a medium gray or any medium value color, as all work will be done under artificial light.
Brushes (a variety): filbert #2 and 4 and bristle blend rounds, #1, 2, and 3 (several of each are recommended), the filbert for massing in large areas and rounds for refining shapes and more precise work.
Oil paint (palette consists of a warm and cool variation of every color except orange): Burnt Umber, *Burnt Sienna, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, *Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium LeMonday, *Cadmium Green Pale, Viridian, Cerulean Blue, *Ultramarine Blue, Magenta, Dioxazine Purple, *Titanium White, Ivory Black, and any special colors you like.
Other: palette: 11˝ x 14˝ or larger, wood or glass (plastic palette saver is most convenient to keep your palette in), palette knives, Viva-brand paper towels, Liquin or Gamblin stand oil, palette cups, odorless mineral spirits, sketchbook, 4B pencil, razor blade, kneaded eraser.
*Required colors for the class
