It's a known fact that I am slightly addicted to online courses...and art supplies, and trying new techniques! This one was a one week summer art camp class hosted by Carla Sonheim but taught by Diane Culhane. Super fun class. For this exercise we used only 4 colors (cadmium red, cadmium yellow, ultramarine blue and titanium white). We started by painting gesso over 2 wood panels. We added color, one light with yellow and red only, and the other one dark with blue and red only. Then we had to draw a tree and added collage leaves with a glue stick. After that, we just painted over it until the painting turned into something we liked!
