Introductions, Materials list, Sketchbook intro
- Today I demonstrated how you can use transparencies to "non-destructively" make adjustments to your painting. You can get value gradations, tints of flat color, images etc. photocopied on to a transparency and put one or more transparencies to see how the painting would change with that addition. You can experiement with many different changes without worrying about messing up your painting. Below I will post some simple sheets you can get printed onto transparecies to start with.
- You can also paint or draw directly on the transparency as it sits on top of your painting. Knowing you are not going to mess up your painting will often free you up to take risks and try things you wouldn't try normally.
- WINTER WORKSHOPS: I will be offering three workshops during the winter term (Emeritus will be closed for the winter term). My workshops will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9AM - noon. It will cost $25 per workshop, so $125 total. For an additional $5 you can stay for another 3 hours of un-instructed work time. Email me if you are interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
