The final class pose of Spring 2009

There will be 5 sessions of this pose to complete the class. I’ve decided to experiment again with different groupings of a limited palette and paint a new painting each class – getting ready for the decisive painting of Plein Air.  I’ll replace this photo next week – the phone camera was on the smallest setting – whoops – and to get it up to 4 inches across is just too much Photoshop for my purposes here. The painting is on Baltic Birch plywood with Dick Blick professional artist gesso (acrylic) and it’s little, measuring 10×8 inches. The paints used are Gamblin’s Phthalo Blue, Quinacridone Magenta, Perylene and Indian Yellow with Radiant White. All strong transparent colors that, as classmate Dave observed, “Play well together.”

    I would love to see a bigger photo before you paint on this again.

    Hi Laraine! I’ll definitely have a better shot of this next week. I am doing one painting a week, getting into Plein Air mode. CC wants a larger painting surface – is that something they all learn in “Teaching Painting 101”?
