The photo at the top of this page shows the stages of a finished painting made from a limited color palette: value drawing, line drawing transferred to the canvas, underpainting (grisaille), first application of color and at the top, the finished work.

The objective of this 5-week course is using a limited color palette as the tool to gain improved value recognition, color mixing skills and understanding of how different edges (soft, hard, diffuse, etc.) add depth to our paintings. Each class will focus on one stage of the traditional painting process of the old masters.
