Homework to do BEFORE class.
You could paint it all any color you like but here is what I did:
to line >>
is 2 1/2 "
Always press down the tape next to your painting line.
top of canvas to line is 2"
1. Tape around D on the line applying tape to sections A,B,&C.
2. Slip slap D using large filbert brush making "x's" in a blotchy look. Use both colors on brush. burnt umber and burnt sienna.
B & C are the same colors but its easier to do one, let it dry then the other because you don't want to overlap your tape. Tape around the section. Wet the sea sponge then squeeze it dry.Sponge on burnt sienna and orange.Turn sponge so colors mingle and don't create a pattern. Dry then you can pat on a metallic gold if you want.
A is taped around then painted Orange.
I only have one stencil like this.
If you have one you like please bring it.
Bring white and dark graphite paper.
Please come early to set up.
Painting begins promptly at the listed classtime.
