Joel Waring: Street scene, 3 March 2021

Joel said: “I’ll be doing a painting of a street scene that shows a strong perspective, I’ll be mapping in the drawing in pencil first, followed by washes of acrylic colour, a charcoal drawing and then application of thicker acrylic paint. I’ll talk quite a bit about getting the perspective correct in the initial drawing before adding the colour.”

Materials: Acrylic paint (Ultramarine, Burnt sienna, Cadmium red, Alizarin crimson, Cadmium yellow), Acrylic gloss varnish, 2B pencil, willow charcoal, hairspray (to fix the charcoal), long flat and filbert brushes, Gesso primed canvas.

Rosie Casselden: Under the sea, 3 Feb 2021

Materials: Canvas, 20 x 50 or smaller. Large flat, smaller flat, rigger. Painting knife. Avoid cobalt colours and ultramarine as they can get bit muddy on mixing. I used Process cyan, Phthalo green, Indigo, and Prussian blue for the sea, plus white, Orange, Cadmium yellow, Burnt umber for the coral. Fish – mix of these colours plus fluorescent pink. Texture – kitchen paper, lentils, anything that can create an uneven surface, PVA glue, white pencil or piece of chalk.

Something for texture – grit, sand, kitchen paper, lentils, structure paste. Masking tape, hairdryer, water pot, mixing palette.
