I did a complement value chart during the $2 Tuturial portion of the broadcast that left us with a cool Yellow and Violet pallet to play with. I was inspired to paint a sunset. Materials are my art Journal made of used paper grocery sacks, Sargent Art’s liquid acrylic student paint deep spectral violet, The Fine Touch acrylic Yellow Med and Black, Master’s Touch Fine Art Studio Acrylic Titanium White, I use Kilz as gesso, and a satin Krylon clear coat. When dry, I’ll apply Turtlewax Spray Wax to keep the pages from sticking together.
Gesso the page
I spray paint the lightest area
Start with your lightest colors
Work through your values
Start adding in detail
Push objects forward or back by manipulating their value
Extra details like happy little birds
Sunsets have their beautiful colors because the short blue and violet wavelengths filter out in our atmosphere. Sunsets on Mars are blue. Discover News has a video about it here: https://youtu.be/DwD3HD6t5Vs
This week we did a little tutorial about value charts and it inspired me to do a monochrome painting of strawberries. Materials used were: An art journal, acrylic gesso, flat white spray paint, Sargent Arts Acrylic Paint liquid Spectral Red, Real Art Supplies Acrylic liquid Carbon Black, Master’s Touch Fine Art Studio Acrylic Titanium White, Faber-Castell Art Grip Aquarelle watercolor pencil Red, Uniball Vision Elite gel pen Black, Brush Pen with Bombay Black India Ink.
Seal the page with acrylic gesso
I use white matte krylon for the base coat
Using only red, white, and black, create background shadows
Use a watercolor pencil to sketch your image
Block in your base shapes
Begin adding detail
Shade the large shapes
Add fine details
I used white paint to back of some excess shadow I didn’t like
Things are changing in my world and this time it looks like the light at the end of the tunnel might not be a train.

This week’s easels are from Athala (http://www.youtube.com/user/jandrathala), Jay the Viking (http://moon-light-creations.webs.com), The Sexy, Red-Headed Darcy (http://art-and-sole.blogspot.co.uk), and Artist Poet Girl Jamie (http://mypurpledoorstudios.blogspot.com).
I’ve spent some time in Louisiana this week and sat on a cool patio in a soft rain while drinking ice cold beer and eating hot crawfish. PURE BLISS! Thought I’d paint about it in my journal a bit. The Sexy, Red-Headed Darcy named our crustacean Steve
Speaking of the easels, I up and left town with laptop in hand to edit this post and get it out for the website and the newsletter, but failed to bring any of the cool easel photos with me. They are all on the desktop that we usually broadcast from. I don’t want you to miss them, so expect a supplement newsletter in the very near future.
