The class will follow along as the instructor demystifies the painting process by breaking it down into steps such as placement, three value block in, and ensuring color harmony by mixing from red, yellow, blue, black and white. Using a landscape photo we'll work on painting with correct values, hues, saturation, and temperature. For the landscapes, I will email the reference photo I'll be using a day ahead of time, and if you have a reference photo of your own that you like better that is similar to what we are painting, you are welcome to bring it. Otherwise, I'll make a good quality color copy at the art center for whoever wants to use my reference. For Still Life, we'll set up still lifes for each person using objects brought in by the instructor and students.
