The background has the incredibly important role of providing context and contrast for the main subject. Having a simple, harmonious background allows the focus to fall entirely on the subject.

Demonstration by instructor – how to get started with a background using  primed, sketched-in subjects on canvas…still life & portraits

WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING: paints, brushes, canvas, art paper, etc. We will actually work on your projects. You should have a couple ready, if possible.

It will be a fun day, mostly hands on.
