Adult Art Classes with Lela
We are excited to welcome Lela Linnenkohl as an instructor at Picket Fence Art Studio.
Painting from a Photograph
Painting from life always brings the freshest results, but we all paint from photos.
Reference Photos for Paintings
This page includes reference photos and the paintings I created from them. You are free to work from your photos or from my reference photos during a class.
We spent a little time in class learning about color wheels.
For this lesson, we will apply color to our value underpaintings.
In applying color, we want to think about Atmospheric Perspective as explained in John Carlson’s Guide to Landscape painting.
Intro to Landscape – Value Angles
A coherent landscape painting is an arrangement of 3 – 4 large masses in a simple four-step value scale.
Charcoal Value Drawings
Observational Charcoal Drawing is one of the best ways to improve your accuracy and add to your understanding of value.
Painterly Pastel Pears
I enjoyed sharing my love of pastels with the Teen and Adult students this week.
I started each class with a demonstration.
