How important is an underpainting? An underpainting not only sets up the “bones” or structure of your painting, but it also sets the tone, literally, for the color palette and atmosphere you choose to depict.
In this fun, fast-paced two-day workshop, we’ll make small landscapes that will allow us to explore up to a dozen different underpainting techniques on the first day of our workshop. Lyn will then guide you through a series of exercises with color palettes on the second day to utilize each of those underpaintings in a different, unique way.
The goal is to offer you new ways to boost the effectiveness of your color choices to help you better achieve the sort of light and atmosphere you with to create in your paintings.
UART Premium Sanded Pastel Paper will be supplied to each student for the workshop.
