Choosing from reference material provided by the instructors, students will learn how to begin with underpaintings in warm and green monotones. Students will discover how to achieve various flesh colors for different skin tones. Each student will be well on their way toward completing either a head or hands subject matter that achieves likeness to realistic flesh colors. The techniques used are an old master’s painting with terreverte underneath the flesh colors. These techniques keep the colors fresh and luminous. This is a great class to learn from master artists who can give the beginning and intermediate students some valuable techniques. Tuition is free to BRMAA members. A Supply List will be supplied upon registering for class.
