Solid Painting in Oils
TWO SESSIONS: Monday AFTERNOON Workshop
The first phase of the workshop will be focusing on composing the painting and establishing a monochromatic value underpainting using a variety of values of ultramarine blue.
This step allows the student to apply the correct colour at the right spot on the painting during the second phase of the workshop.
