Wipe-Out Method in Oils with Holly White-Gehrt
Saturday, March 21st, 2015
Special 90 minute single session!
Wipe out method
It has been said of this stage that “your painting will never look this good again.” The “wipe-out” is a method used to establish value range (dark to light) as a first layer in a painting. It’s a fun technique yielding immediate satisfaction!
Holly will show you how to transfer a drawing (cartoon) to canvas, how to begin the wipeout, and how to extend the drying time. Holly will use oil paint, but this technique can be used in slow-drying acrylic, or even in charcoal or graphite.
Holly is an instructor of Georgetown Atelier’s Part-Time program and teaches summer classes at Gage Academy.
Holly is a graduate of Georgetown Atelier. She also holds a BFA from Pacific Northwest College of Art, and began her art studies at the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts in Paros, Greece. Holly firmly believes that anyone can acquire classical drawing and painting skills, given the desire and tenacity required to develop them.
