Now that I am off a cleanse I could also enjoy some of the morning snacks with my coffee. We started the workshop taught by Martinho Corriea by going over the handouts and a brief demonstration. Since we were expected to have a canvas already prepped with a level 3 tonal wash of burnt umber, so that it would be dry, we jumped right in.
Flake(lead White), Yellow Ochre, Cadmium red light, Indian/venetian red, red umber, burnt umber, raw umber and black.
To mix colors:
We used the yellow ochre and a touch of red to create an orange then stretched it out with white until the light skin tone was achieved. The second was made by adding red umber to the previous mix. he third was made from red umber and white. Following that the red umber and white mix blended with some burnt umber and finally a mix of burnt umber and white. It was necessary to make in between blends of each as well.
I am really looking forward to continuing the process tomorrow morning, keep checking in on my progress =;)
