Exploring Underpainting for Pastel and Other Media

Lisa Stauffer

Play with the possibilities that a loose underpainting can provide for the abstract foundation of your painting. Experiment with a variety of media to create colorful and textural designs to paint on. These will include watercolor, oil stain, inks, gesso and more to begin your paintings with abandon! These underpaintings will work for nearly any media, instructor demonstrations will continue in pastel. Bring photos, paintings, field studies of subjects that you love to paint so that you have a familiarity with your subject already- that allows you more freedom to experiment in class. This class works well for all opaque mediums such as pastel, acrylic, gouache and even watercolor! Material fee provides underpainting materials, see supply list for what to bring from home.
