Braitman Studio’s 2015 Summer Art Exercises: #13 Follow-the-Leader Step 6

Balance at the Water's Edge by Andy Braitman, 40x40, Oil on canvas

Today is the very last of Braitman Studio’s Summer Art Exercises! Thank you for participating in these fun creative projects! We hope to see you this fall at Braitman Studio, click here to learn more about what classes we have to offer you!

Today we will begin by pulling on color and value into and across the colors and values directly underneath it. Use the verticals of the tree shapes to merge the edges of each shape: cool mid-tone across the warm light, cool dark across the cool mid-tone, warm mid-tone across warm light, warm dark across warm mid-tone.

At the very end, use a rubber tipped tool to draw shapes and place some more chaotic and pure color into the edges and centers of each shape. You can continue to develop this painting as much as you wish, anything you add from here on is just “the jewelry” of the painting!

Great work and come paint with us this fall!

Braitman Studio’s 2015 Summer Art Exercises: #12 Follow-the-Leader Step 5

Version 4

Use a lemon yellow mid-tone to join the light sky shape with the cool dark foreground of the left edge of the canvas and an azo yellow deep mixed with burnt sienna mid-tone to unite the light sky with the warmth of the dark on the upper right side of the painting.

Let this painting build loosely, keep focusing on big shapes and don’t get to the details too quickly!

Braitman Studio’s 2015 Summer Art Exercises: #11 Follow-the-Leader Step 4

Version 3

Taking into consideration the sun’s direction, mass in both a cool dark and a warm dark using the same open strokes you used in the previous two Summer Art Exercises. The warm darks bathes the right/middle sides of the canvas and the cool dark is silhouetted on the lower dark side of the canvas.

Let light drive all of your decisions in this layer of the painting!

Using an off white (azo red light and lemon yellow and white), block in the sky and the water with the same open strokes you used in last week’s Summer Art Exercise. Use a more horizontal stroke for the water and a more vertical stroke for the sky.
