Today was the first day of the Winter Quarter for SBCC Continuing Education Program. This was the Demonstration painting I produced for the class using oil paints, on gessoed board. The colors I used were based on a palette by Velazquez: Ultramarine Blue, Alizarine Crimson, Burnt Umber, Yellow Ocher, plus Titanium White.
The Demonstration up to this stage, took about one hour.
I figure I will spend about two more hours glazing it on it in the studio, simplifying some areas, glazing and clarifying other parts.
It felt good to push the oils around again, and I am appreciative of the 35 students who showed up for the class.
