Intermediate Painting

11:00 - 13:00

This is an intermediate level skin class, focused mainly on blending and glazing to achieve smooth skin tones. But unlike last fall, we’ll be going crazy! (Insert Bob Ross voice here.) This class will cover blue skin, perfect for our frosty giantess. Students should be familiar with glazing and/or layering in order to get the most out of this class. While the majority of the class will be spent on the face, I will cover placement of highlights and shadows on other skin surfaces and the differences between painting male and female figures. Please bring a brush with a nice tip. I find it easier to blend skin with a size 1 or 2 brush, as smaller brushes tend to dry out more quickly. Students will receive a handout on material covered in the class. You will also need a palette, paper towel or sponge, a cup of water and good lighting. We will be using 77592, Frost Giant Queen. Colors used in class will be linen white, nightshade purple, ultramarine shadow, fair skin, mint green, ashen blue. If you don’t have ashen blue, clouded sea would also work. Clean your miniature before class with warm water and dish soap, and remove any mold lines you’d like with a sharp knife. You do not need to prime, but please basecoat the skin areas with an even coat of ultramarine shadow.
