Intuitive Art - Expressive Figures with Betsy Dillard Stroud DVD
In this start-to-finish painting demonstration, join artist Betsy Dillard Stroud as you learn to paint loose and expressive figures! You’ll begin by using fluid acrylics in transparent washes to create an underpainting. Next, you’ll learn how to progress through the painting by letting each color choice inform the next as you paint wet-into-wet. Betsy shows you how to play with your color and let yourself enjoy the paint while still considering composition and color harmony. You’ll develop the painting by using stamps to imply just enough detail while still leaving the viewer’s imagination a place to roam. Finally, opaques add contrast and interest to excite your surface and create an adventurous, expressive finished piece!
In this video, you'll:
- Get color tips for creative flesh and hair tones
- Discover the magic of leaving parts of the painting undone
- Learn multiple ways to vary your color
- Free your creative spirit and follow your intuition!
