American Artist

DVDfrontIn this DVD, I demonstrate a 3-step approach to understanding color and value in figure painting.  Get started with color mixing and understanding value relationships with a poster study.  Next, I demonstrate a figure study, starting with an ebauche (thin wash) in a limited palette, and then paint the form with a full color palette.  I show you about all my colors, give detailed info about color mixing and theory, and teach you how to get natural skin tones through careful observation of warm, cool, and complementary colors.  In this 3-hour video, you learn about the classical approach to the figure, which breaks down the steps of setting up an underpainting, and then adding subtle details of form and color with a second pass.

User Review: “Patricia breaks each step of the process down into manageable bites so that the process is actually fun rather than overwhelming. She is very good at explaining not only each step but also the thought process, and how she sees the colors–which is something I really have struggled with. I find her very limited palette for the underpainting really helps to keep things simple yet provides great results. Thanks Patricia, so much, for such an awesome DVD.  It is helping me immensely to enjoy the process of learning.” -Tracey, Vancouver
