I’m continuing to follow along in James Gurney’s new online class. In the second exercise, we add a few colours (I chose red, yellow and blue) to the limited palette of black and white gouache. In addition, the suggestion is to add an underpainting of Raw Sienna casein. I didn’t have the colour, so I used Naples Yellow which turned green because I hadn’t cleaned my brush properly from yesterday. Tomorrow I hope to take this show on the road. I need to get out of my basement and do some car sketching!!

    wow, interesting lessons about color, i’m a beginner


    • Beth, I would say that anyone can learn from what James Gurney does. He starts simply and gets more complex as he goes along. And even though what he paints is never simple, you can always choose your own subject. If you are interested in seeing how he works, he has many videos on YouTube.

    I’m enjoying your schoolhouse lessons and learning a lot from them. My own subject just now is a patch of allotments, so the lessons fit well with the little plots and sheds.
    Stay safe and well.
