Week 4

Week 4 :

Friday, September 21

We will begin work on a still life painting. Come prepared with all your usual paint supplies including a new surface to paint on.


  • This week we started a still life painting from a simple set up of bottles and vessels. You can see pictures of the set up below.
  • In my demonstration I used only burnt umber and titanium white acrylic paint. This allowed me to focus on getting correct values (light and dark).
  • Next week I will demonstrate how to layer color on top of this value painting in both transparent and opaque layers.
  • Make sure you bring all your paints next week and the painting we started in class today.
