Today I started the first painting of Teddy with the help of Charles Miano. He advised me to limit my palette to the primary colors red, yellow, and blue along with my tints and shades. This limitation helped me to see the colors of my subject and read them to be either more on the warm or cool side. The knowledge I gained will help me to explain better the ability to see color and the practice of mixing primary colors to obtain many colors to my students. So far I have been to three of the three-hour portrait sessions. A first painting can be accomplished in two three-hour session.
Welcome to The Studio
On this page you will find posts of what takes place in The Studio. It is my goal to have a daily documentation of my art practice. As an art educator I explain to my students the importance of practicing to improve their skill. I too have to continue to hold my self accountable for my evolution as an artist. I plan to use different references to help build my technical, creative, and observational skills. As artists we use our creativity and some type medium to express an idea or an emotion. I want to see what I can express as I go through this creative journey. I hope you enjoy the process.
