A left-brained technologist by nature, education, and training, I am now retired and experimenting with the "other half" of whatever brain I still possess. I am looking to meet interesting people, engage in variety of group activities, travel, and enjoy my grandchildren.
Annie Gould Gallery presents an Art Talk featuring JUDITH ELY and CHEE KLUDT RICKETTS
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28 at 11:00 am
As part of this month’s exhibit, we are delighted that Chee Kludt Ricketts and Judith Ely will be at Annie Gould Gallery on Thursday, February 28th at 11 am to present a lively and informative discussion of their painting techniques.
We enjoyed a very interesting process for creating unique and interesting portraits in our January Program.
Deborah Conn shared her expertise with us and had these tidbits of information to help us with our portrait painting using her techniques:
1) Start with a slick, textured surface
2) Try working with a black and white photo or drawing to allow for inventive color choices
3) Create a colorful under painting
4) Follow your drawing to lift and add to reach the desired result of values
5) Notice that since the color is not absorbing into the paper, the colors remain brighter
6) Treat each part of the face as a separate little painting
Here is Deborah’s message to our Guild members:
“Many thanks for a lovely reception by your group – I so enjoyed doing the demo and hope it was helpful.
Here are a couple of links to things I talked about.
This is the palette I have, or close enough. This is a LONG link, but if people “Google Heritage Arts palette removable cups”, it will come up.
