Painting Classes 27th – 31st January

To warm up this week in the painting classes we opted for some tropical sunsets inspired by two paintings from Terry Harrison. The first example is done in acrylic, the last two in watercolour.

Painting Classes 21st – 25th November

Only few weeks left before the end of the term.

In preparation of some life drawing we worked on one of my favourite subject: portrait. With the help of a grid everyone managed to get the proportion more or less right!

For the portrait of the man below we used tissue paper and watercolour.

Acrylic on paper for this portrait.

 

 

Mixed media: Watercolour, tissue paper and acrylic in this last version.

Painting Classes 7th – 18th November

Here are few images featuring Lisbon and tram 28 that I painted as demonstrations in the classes. Perspective and cars were causing a lot of sighs in the class!

The first two examples are painted in acrylic, the last two in watercolour.
