The first two classes will have the student work on small panels or canvases (16×12) in a value study mono-chrome to fully realize a completed image.
The third and fourth classes will have the student work in a limited palette on the same size panel or canvases (16×12). The same objective of creating a finished work for each class remains. The focus will be primarily on value while introducing the concept of temperature through color.
The final three classes will have the student work on a larger panel or canvas with the idea of working on the same painting throughout. The focus on color and value remains. Additionally, at this point paint application, edges and style will be discussed and stressed.
