Knowing how or even where to begin a painting can be confusing. Especially for beginning artists. Particularly when you're faced with the abundance of nature's seasonal glory. In this video workshop, Tim Deibler demonstrates four different methods of starting a painting that will lead you towards a finished piece in just two joyful sessions.
Follow along as Tim creates a series of evocative landscapes. A cool winter scene of Colorado mountains starts with a warm underpainting. A sparkling river scene begins as a red underpainting, which works to offset the wealth of greens in the final piece. A monochromatic underpainting establishes the basic bones of a Grand Canyon scene, while a brilliant autumn foliage scene begins as a humble series of transparent yellow washes.
After the paintings sit overnight, watch as Tim goes back in to rework, reshape, and make final subtle changes to build drama and atmosphere.Along the way you'll see palette-action as Tim works his mixes.
Pick up tips for getting your values correct and, at the same time, capture an accurate, evocative sense of light.
