The Process of Building a Creative Landscape with Andy Braitman

This month in the Creative Concepts in Painting Class at Braitman Studio we have been continuing to explore our fall theme of chaos vs. order. Below is a handout detailing the step-by-step creative process of a painting demonstration in this class by Andy Braitman:

Braitman Studio: Suggested Intermediate Paints & Brands

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Above you will find a list of suggested intermediate oil paints and brands that some of our Braitman Studio instructors selected JUST for you! We hope that as you paint with some of the new tubes above you will enjoy, see and feel the difference in working with better quality oil paints. Remember, investing in a bit more expensive oil paint allows a little bit of paint go a long way because it has less filler and more pigment.

All of the paint listed above can be purchased at a Cheap Joes, Binders Art Supply, etc. except for the Utrecht tubes we listed, which need to be ordered from www.utrecht.com. If you prefer online shopping it is good to know that Utrecht also carries a lot of the other paint brands above.

Good luck and if you have any questions, contact us at 704.846.1369!

Summer Art Exercise #30:

The final exercise is to distract they eye by creating a pattern or surface away from the edge but still in the shape. This is similar to exercise #24 but with a more specific distraction placement.

DISTRACT THE EYE

We are now moving to our edge control exercises that are based around the concept of distracting the eye.

In this first exercise, use local color reflections to distract the viewer’s eye.

Don’t let life distract you from taking an hour or so a week to practice some of these great exercises!
