After Millet

After The Gleaners.Jean-Francois Millet 1857
14 cm x 10 cm acrylic on paper

Tuesday's class at SARA Hall. Using a limited palette of 3 primaries and white, paint a well known picture. Use the painting as a starting point only, make the colours your own but try to keep to the tonal values. Keep the painting strokes to a minimum and take it just beyond the block in stage. Try to spend no more than an hour on the study.

After Susan Lyon

Both studies 24 cm x 19 cm acrylic on paper.

Practice at painting edges and keeping the paint loose and clean, painted roughly in the style of the excellent Susan Lyon. I have to say its quiet challenging in acrylics as opposed to oils as you have to work quicker to maintain the integrity of the edges.

It's ever so tempting to join in and paint for 3 hours at the life class, but I enjoy these 15 minute studies as I teach.
