Fall 2019 Teen Oil Painting

 I introduced our class with a theme of "Medieval" but everyone was too excited to work on their own ideas so I did a demonstration and then let them loose!  I love seeing the creativity and enthusiasm of these oil painting students!

Castle Demonstration
First I started with a demo of a value study of my composition as the underpainting.

As I went along we talked about color properties and also how to work from a photograph.

Here's the finished painting.

Here's a look at the student's work during the 8 weeks of class.
