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, 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, called a notan. Using the notan to structure the painting, you will learn how the varied techniques produce exciting and differing results from the same reference photographs, giving you the skills necessary to develop your own personal style.
