Sharp Shadows: Class Demo

Sharp Shadows/ oil on board/ 6 x 6/ Low Country Gallery
This coming Saturday (November 23) this will be the demo painting that we will do step-by-step for the first half of our class. With this style of teaching, the instructor paints a passage (a piece of the painting) and then the class paints the same passage. I think this type of teaching works really well if there is also teaching/reinforcement so the student can go home and practice with this new information on their own painting.

Artist Note: This was painted on black primed gessobord. On Saturday, we will experiment with different prime colors. This painting also uses the knowledge of the differences between transparent and opaque pigments. If you are local and might be interested in this class, we have at least one spot available this time.
