In art, an underpainting is an initial layer of paint applied to a ground, which serves as a base for subsequent layers of paint. Underpaintings are often monochromatic and help to define color values for later painting. After doing a charcoal drawing, you will learn how to paint step by step like the Masters. You can transfer this technique with modern colors as well. Randall is a classically trained professional violinist and artist who brings classical techniques to his students.

This will be a fun and intensive course in painting fundamentals. Students will learn to interpret and represent diverse subject matter from observation and imagination. Color relationships, compositional strategies, spatial illusion and paint “presence” will all be part of the on-going studio play, punctuated by pithy critiques in a tutorial approach. The practical aspects of painting will be emphasized along with the cognitive demands of judging one’s work and that of others. Students may work in oils or acrylics.
