Artist Tip Of The Month


An under-painting is the first application of paint. It's a method by which texture, shape, and value can be added before you really begin to paint. Under-paintings can be used to establish lights, mid-tones and darks. They make paintings richer, add mystery and establish rhythm. Under-paintings can allow you to start with an abstract pattern rather than with realism. This is an exciting way to reach out beyond the ordinary.
