We have structured this foundation painting class so that many different skill levels from absolute beginner to intermediate artist can participate. Start the class with basic painting exercises along with explaining your painting materials and how to use them to your advantage. We will spend time painting the basic forms from a still life set up using direct lighting to help you understand value. You will learn how to see these same basic forms when you paint more complex objects. You will learn about proper proportions and relationships. We will cover eye level and foundation perspective, explore line and values, direct lighting and cast shadows as well as soft and hard edges. You will be given lots of one on one instruction with plenty of demonstrations to guide you through the different elements of good painting.
