In this workshop, students will learn to simplify their subject into limited values and use value studies as roadmaps to a full color painting. These invaluable compositional tools will help the artist to organize shapes and values, strengthen the impact of a design, and make the painting process proceed more smoothly. Participants should have a basic understanding of the oil painting medium. Minimum of 5 students, maximum of 10.
Reference photos. Please bring both a color and black-and-white version, full-page size
Palette knifes (I use two)
Palette or palette paper pad 2 or more Canvases or panels—-one for a value study and one for your painting. For your painting please use 11×14 or larger.
Bring your usual palette plus black or Payne’s gray. You can also use black and white acrylic for your value study.
Here’s the palette I normally use:
Cadmium yellow light
Cadmium red light
Quinacridone magenta or Alizarin Crimson
You will also need Black or Payne’s Gray for your value studies
Gamsol and palette cup and container

I use nitrile gloves when I paint but that is totally up to you.
