10 Minute Fruit exercise - apples and mandarin oranges
Value paintings over photographs
Paintings on canvas over value under paintings
We had such fun at my Daily Painting workshop at Artascope in Yarmouth on Saturday! Six great students, some drawing, the 10 minute fruit exercise (my favorite), value painting over a photo (a student favorite), and a finally repainting the value painting in acrylic burnt sienna and white, drying it, and then applying color on top. Dotting your mixed color on the brown value painting, then squinting lets you see if you've mixed your color at the correct value. It really works, try squinting at the study below.
