Thank you for registering! In this class, not only will you learn how to paint a sunflower but I will teach you how to create a sky that is gradated from dark to light. At the beginning of the class, you will practice drawing the basic shapes of sunflower petals. There is also a lot of colour mixing involved to get the oranges, browns and greens we will be needing. Rarely do we use paint straight out of the tubes!
Canvas boards 11 x 14 Found at Michaels in packs of 5 Palette Use your own or use a styrofoam plate or sheet of glass. My preference is wet blue shop paper towel on a tray or cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. It keeps the paint moist for an entire day. Acrylic Paints - use what you have or get the best you can afford. Do not use craft paint. Liquitex basics are good to start with. My students use Tri-Art Paints which are artist grade and available at Inglewood Art Supplies. Paint colours - Phthalo blue, cadmium yellow, a cool red and titanium white Brushes - Simply Simmons are student grade brushes that I still use. #12- Large brush and #4 and #2 flat Paper Towels and a container for hot water Hair Dryer Piece of white chalk or pencil or pastel pencil
