Under Painting Artist Lesson

UNDER-PAINTING:
by Rob Gribble


Under Painting Artist Lesson Ron Gribble

I first prepared the board by applying an acrylic, warm, mid tone colour to cover the white board. This is a lot more helpful than the dead plain white of the canvas. Light is warm, so whatever I am painting, this warm colour will not fight against my efforts.

Once this is dry, apply what I call the TINT COLOUR. These pigments will be used in variations, throughout the painting.

THESE PIGMENTS ARE ULTRAMARINE BLUE, ALIZARINE CRIMSON, COERULEUM BLUE. (There are many spellings of this pigment).

I mixed these first in acrylic, as this will dry quickly, and be more stable as an under-painting. The patterns of colour that you will see (page 3) are random. I did allow the tint to be thicker where I intend to place the bluff and details however.

I am going to attempt to work through a complete painting from start to finish.  I suggest that you read this whole demonstration through several times before you attempt to paint it on a 16x20 canvas panel.
Now, the next step is to look at my Acrylic Paint set up.

Happy painting,
Ron Gribble
