My first acrylics atelier class assignment

My first acrylics atelier class assignment

Yeah, so much for posting “daily” to this blog! We see how well that worked out! But I have something to post today. And I still have plans for this blog; no really, I do! 😉 I’m taking an online class (atelier) from fabulous acrylics portrait artist, Chantel Barber. So I have my first assignment, a small acrylics sketch. I won’t describe the assignment in too much detail, because it’s Chantel’s class and if you want to know what her specific instruction is, then take her classes yourself! 🙂 Oh, how I struggle with acrylics! That’s why I am taking this class! The colors in the painting look more subdued than in the photo ref. I don’t know what to say—my iPad seems to cool colors down, because I saw a lot more pale, subtle colors on the iPad, including some green in the forehead area and around the mouth. It’s not so evident in this photo, displaying on my desktop computer. Oh well.

Jason Aaron Baca acrylics mini painting

Jason Aaron Baca acrylics mini painting

I did this little study in acrylics, and I guess the texture in the canvas, as well as the small size (which made the texture bigger in proportion) made it a very difficult painting to scan or photograph! So I took my scan (which had a lot of reflected canvas texture) and fiddled with some filters in Photoshop, in hopes of bringing out the painting and minimizing the canvas texture. This attempt is only partially successful in doing that. Another notable thing about this painting is that it was painted with the Zorn Palette, which is a limited palette consisting of only White, Vermillion (Cadmium Red Light will do), Black (often Ivory Black), and Yellow Ochre. I write more about the Zorn Palette on my main site. You can see another picture of the painting (which I took with my mobile phone, ironically) on my main site’s blog, which escaped capturing all the canvas texture, but still (I think) made the colors too harsh.
