Class description: Join us in building a painting from the ground up. We will begin with a solid structure. From there we will look at the do’s and don’t’s of composition and create a solid, dynamic starting point for our painting. Working from our studies, we will use under-painting to give the painting a buoyant, lively beginning. Not only does the under-painting provide valuable guidance to the finished work, but, often, these are accomplished works of art in themselves.
