|"Azaleas in the Sun"|
8 x 10 oil painting
by Pat Fiorello
This painting was done as a demonstration painting at my recent "Oil Painting Basics" workshop.
The group was comprised of mostly people who had never painted in oils or never painted at all before so we started with the basics- materials, color mixing, value control, creating form, black & white and color studies and then brought it all together painting this landscape step by step.
Below are the steps in the process- placement, the block in (starting to lay in the darkest shape, adding in the middle values, bringing in the next lightest value and then ending with the lightest lights). Once the entire canvas was covered, the block in is complete. Then the final stage is refinement or fine tuning shapes, colors, values and edges.
