132 New online class

I recently came across a great opportunity to start an online class. It's something I've wanted to do for quite some time but just didn't know enough about the process. I decided to try Concert Window. James Gurney recently used it and reported on his blog that it was a great experience. It seems like too fun an opportunity to pass up.

The class will be on September 11th at 9:00 pm EDT. I plan on doing a one hour demo on underpainting in preparation to complete a landscape in thick paint (other classes to follow). You can buy a ticket for $1 at Concert Window. I hope you will join us!

Here is the image I will be painting from. I will do a video about drawing from this sketch next Monday. If you would like to paint along with this project feel free to do a sketch based on this image or you can choose one of your own. This image is proportional to 16" x 20".

    2. I plan on painting along Brad. I think that would be most useful. Meantime, I will prepare sketches based on your reference photo.

      I've read recently that Pierre Bonnard used your method of painting - that is from the sketch. He would observe, take notes on the colors, etc. then use his memory and the sketch to finish up the painting. This process seems more conducive to creativity.

    3. I agree! Sometimes when I've spent too much time on a color study I exhaust my creative energy. A graphite sketch is the perfect solution.
