Stage one A base coat of a warm color followed by drawing in cut lines. then you paint with in these lines with a thinned out paint with no white medium in it. using a rag or a brush form wood graining I wanted tiger wood.
next you draw in the charcoal cut lines and paint in some wood graining using yellow and black. Keeping all graining with in the cut line drawing areas
Next is the highlight and shadow and painting black on the cut lines and white on the cut line highlights, the highlight is a thin yellow and the shadow is a thinned purplish black color
I am trying to document this class as it is all hands on no books and no hand outs you just have to memorize how to do things. So this is going to be my refresher course in years to come as to how to do something.
this is plaster Quoin and beveled marble There are several steps to this one. You can see just a few of them in these photos.
Sorry bad photo but the orange is yellow orange and a dark orange mixed to look like a plastered wall . The gray area was taped off when doing the orange area and visa versa when painting the gray allowed to dry between these steps the gray is actually three colors dark and medium gray and a whitish color starting with darkest colors first and going to lighter the reverse was true with the plaster.
Next we charcoles inthe quions and their beveled edges
Next paint in the highlight and shadow light upper right corner
Paint in mud lines between quoins using a piece of molding as a raised edge so we don't have paint running under a ruler.
lastly paint in shadows remembering that the light is coming from the upper right corner and the edges have angles
