Learn how the use of an underpainting helps to create a unified pastel, and helps provide a foundation onto which to build your painting. You will experience several underpainting media, including pastel with water, pastel with alcohol, pastel with watercolors, gouache, acrylics, and the pastels by themselves. Lessons in this class will explore the results of underpainting using color compliments, monochromatic colors, warm and cool colors, as well as local colors. Each class will begin with a demonstration, followed by individual work with continual guidance. You will learn how to simplify your reference image into a few shapes of different values, to structure the painting.
