Below are a few photograps and graphics of paintings showing some of the subjects covered in this section of the Core part two. Instructor Linda Wise begins her tomato still life lesson with an umber underpainting. This teaches the student how to create form using a single pigment, as well as demonstrates how color harmony is an added bonus of the under-painting exercise. Students love this lesson as it helps them reinforce the earlier concepts of form and tests their abilities to control color values.



In this landscape lesson, artist instructor Neadeen Masters includes basic perspective. As students paint this landscape, they learn how to render distance as they apply the concepts of linear perspective. As you paint through this lesson, Neadeen also describes the how's and why's of color mixing, and stresses how these methods can be tnsferred to other painting subjects.
