Event description

Description

This is a two-day workshop during which we will explore ways to create a successful landscape painting from photographic references by accurate color mixing, layering, and varied markmaking. The student can sign up for one or both days.

Day One: focus on color and techniques for an alla prima study of your chosen subject, while building the first layers of a more in depth exploration of that subject on a larger canvas. Topics will include how to successfully match the color for your chosen reference and how to build underlayers as a support to help you best translate your chosen reference into a painting.

Day 2: focus on strategies of color mixing, application, and layering to build on the infrastructure of the larger painting that was begun the week before. We will explore different ways to use brushes to create effects for sky, foliage, water, or whatever else is in the studen's reference photo. If a student only wants to attend for this second day, he or she can bring a painting that they have already been working on.

Chelsea Classical Studio, Gamblin Colors and Princeton Brush Co have generously agreed to sponsor the event; students who attend will receive a pointed filbert brush from Princeton and a solvent and a medium from Gamblin.

Suggested Supply List

A photographic reference to work from-- it would be great if you could bring a few so we can choose one together

A canvas pad or at least two canvases or panels, one small (around 8" X 10," and one larger, anywhere from 11" X 14" to 16" X 20." The sizes are really the student's choice

Titanium White

Lemon/ citron yellow

Cadmium yellow medium

Yellow ochre

Cadmium orange

An earth red like Rose Madder

Alizarin crimson

Ultramarine blue

Pthalo blue

Sap green

Viridian green

Dioxazine purple

Burnt Siena

Burnt Umber

Raw Siena

Ivory black


Brushes: preferably a wide variety of sizes of rounds, filberts, and brights, and a few liner brushes for details


Solvent- odorless mineral spirits in a silicoil jar. Anyone who prefers to avoid turp can clean their brushes in oil. You can use linseed oil but walnut oil from the grocery store is usually cheapest. I also recommend using dish soap to clean brushes.


Palette- palette pad or a glass or plexiglass palette are best. Bigger is almost always better with palettes


Palette knife
