In this lesson, instructor Tina Orsolic Dalessio will teach you how to create an underpainting for your still-life project using raw umber. You will learn to thin out the paint pigment using spike oil; from there, slowly build up the values of the background and objects. Tina will also demonstrate adding a small amount of white paint on the area of highlights to give the underpainting a full range of values.
This lesson belongs to the course Introduction to Still-life Painting I. In this course, Tina Orsolic Dalessio will introduce you to the history and symbolism of still-life painting. You will examine the composition of artwork from the Old Masters. Then, you will learn how to set up to paint a still-life from life, create a color study, and sketch a transfer drawing in the sight-size method. Next, Tina will teach you how to tackle a painting from start to finish with oil paints. After this course, you will gain significant knowledge on still-life painting that can be applied to other genres.
