Painting a Still Life

Just a couple weeks before the fall session starts. Classes are almost full with a nice balance of returning students and new students. Here some shots from  the 9-12 year olds acrylic painting day of summer camp. 




Our fresh from the garden still life. The palette of colours is careful chosen so that we can learn about cool colours, tints and shades.  


The first step is a quick sketch in pencil crayon to establish a composition and correct proportions.
students are then ready to block out the main shapes with colour.




Love the variety of brush strokes and colours.
