E'bauche and Direct painting methods
Martin talked about Gestalt suggestive visual ambiguity
Related to what you can make the viewer believe from as few marks as possible.
Today we made a study from a Seago
Painting using the Direct painting method.
First stage make a pencil sketch
A colour E' bauche
Rag in use 50 50 paint to medium
Blocking using a size 12 filbert brush
No medium dry brush no cleaning mix all colours on the pallet with the brush.
Lots of Tonking and more colour contrasts
Next stage 4
Work on creating focal point using 4
filber Brush in this case I chose to work on the golden section area blocking in buildings and back grounds creating contrasts.1.30 minutes
Everything must be done in the under painting, then last of all add the Impasto
Pallet knife work only to the focal
don't forget to create a colour counter- change
