Here is Franklins wonderful photo that we are working with and a few changes that I made to it for the painting.
After those were in I started to place chairs.
The thing about the chairs is they needed to be put in in the simplest way there is,
in one perfect stroke.
|I knew this was going to take all my concentration to make look right so I scouted ahead of the class to see what needed to be done. Mixing up all the different values of orange and browns was key to getting the floor to pay down right.|
A student in the class did a couple little videos of me while I was working. They are from the end of the first class and I am putting in the plants in the background in one and I'm putting in the wall candle holders in the other.
Here the floor is in a good place for the next class. I put in some of the glare and reflections , but there is still some magic to be put in yet. Next week we start the windows and the people.
Here are the painting class paintings in the different stages of progress.
