  • Mediums

    What is a medium? If someone asks which medium (singular) you use they are most likely asking if you are an oil painter, watercolorist, or an acrylic painter. Oil pastels, colored pencil and graphite artists all work in their chosen medium as do those artists who create non-traditional works of art. All these are referenced as mediums and sometimes as media. Mediums are also products used to enhance and manipulate paint. This Classroom contains videos and text lessons showing how to use Traditions Mediums which are products used with acrylic paint.

    Open for continuous registration - All course materials are completely uploaded into the classroom - there is no wait time between lessons and videos. Work along at your own pace.

    The Power of Observation. Why does the artist's success depend on their power of observation? When our basic level of awareness is raised through education we begin to look at things differently. We then pay closer attention. When our subliminal perception is being used or manipulated to change the way we react or see something we read between the lines, we go deeper into evaluation. The same idea happens to the student artist before they learn to ‘see’. Unless our observation skills are honed and developed we will be unaware of underling or less obvious details. Color is one example. Without a keen sense of observation our basic level of awareness remains the same. Streaming video, photographs, quizzes, text lessons. - No additional supplies required.

  • Blending Method 4 - Block and Blend

    For Beginners and Beyond

    Core Class #9 - Blending Method # 4 - Block & Blend and Indirect Painting Method - Block & Blend as it is often called is also a combination of both indirect and direct painting methods. A majority of artists combine both applications to create a single painting. Initial layers are often blended directly, and after this first layer has dried, indirect applications of transparent colors are glazed over opaque layers to assist in the further creation of form. This style of blending also renders a painterly style of brushwork.

    If you love landscape painting, you'll really enjoy the second study in this course explores the true Indirect Painting Method:Learn the paint application made popular by the Old Masters. Multiple layers of paint are applied to create form, depth and luminosity. Beginning with transparent applications, the artist first creates the initial layer, next opaque layers are used to facilitate form, and subsequent transparent layers are applied to create the local color of objects.Complete 2 paintings (under-painting landscape and Bell pepper) Purchase here
