#Taliesin, #PleinAir, and #HOMEWORK for July 10! See you on Monday at #CampWadewitz.

  1. REMEMBER – We are MEETING at Camp Wadewitz on Monday. Nobody will be at the school for access to the classroom. You need to get yourself to Wadewitz for the morning.
  2. HOMEWORK was assigned on Thursday for everyone… the three of you who were unable to go on the field trip… HERE is your copy of the assignment (I’ll have it with me on Monday too).
  3. A link to the photo album of our Taliesin Field Trip is HERE. PLEASE add your photos from our trip. This was a great day and I want as much visual to remember the visit. Your views are different than mine and I want to see what you saw too.

Ok… What’s Next?

If you are ever in the Spring Green part of Wisconsin, or are just looking for a destination for the day, Taliesin is the place to go. (Not to be confused with the House on the Rock – which is a lovely place I am sure.) My plein air artists were treated to a beautiful and insightful tour of the house and studio of Mr. Wright in Taliesin as well as the school of architecture (and lunch) at the Hillside School (information about the school itself can be found HERE). Thank you to Caroline and Becky for the hospitality and warm welcome (again). Thanks also to the hardworking artists who were able to paint, draw, and get to meet some of the folks at Taliesin. As for Mr. Korb… I got two watercolors done (one is now in the collection of Effi Casey, an instructor at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture – Taliesin) a painting of her house on the Taliesin Grounds.

What do you see in the two paintings you created yesterday that can be / should be / will be worked up today and resolved? This is a good time to see HOW the process of making art takes time and requires more work than one day / work session might allow.

Nothing new today. Continue working the images from yesterday. Plan on the field trip for tomorrow or Thursday. That’s it.

How did you resolve the ideas and the images from the past two days (6 hours) of work. Did you get to make another painting in the process? A third painting?

Today we are going to talk about the ideas of ACRYLICS specifically. We’re going to see how to build up the underlying colors of an acrylic painting by looking at the ideas of Milwaukee artist Shelby Keefe. What does a contrasting color do to help support a color laid above – laid on top of another color?

Use of Acrylic paints in the outdoors. Dries fast. Set of Brushes and Set of Paints. (May have to share.) Cups of water and rags (RAGS are really important!) Start with the underpainting – THIN and transparent – lots of water – thin washes. After dried – pencil in the ideas and then work the paints over the top. This is a building up and building up of the images. Layers and layers of color and working. PLEASE take your time. This may be ONE painting or two paintings per day and then the same two paintings the next day.

Let’s look at what you got done today. What are the thoughts overall?

51: Learn the basic principles of color. There are three primary colors: red, blue, and yellow. They are the building blocks of all other colors. The secondary colors are violet (blue and red), green (blue and yellow), and orange (red and yellow). They are composed by the equal mixture of two primaries. All other colors are referred to as tertiary, because they are mixtures of a primary and a secondary color. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School
