In week two, instructor Joseph Todorovich will teach you how to create a color study for a long-pose figure painting. Joseph will walk you through his color palette. You will watch him block in the drawing with charcoal, then paint over with thinned-out paints as a value wash. Joseph will lecture on color harmony and color mixing as he develops his study. You will gain a lot of knowledge by listening to his thinking process as he makes decisions on each paint stroke. At last, Joseph will quickly build the initial drawing for his large painting.
