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.
