FOR WEEK 19:

Powerpoint Slideshow

Finish the underpainting for Botticelli's Virgin. Use India or other waterproof ink. If you don't have either, mix up shades of gray from your pigments. You will have to use small short strokes to paint in egg tempera. Refer to the black and white photo to see the shadows and highlights, or to the slides. Pay attention to where areas that appear to be lines get thicker and thinner- this will make your shadows look more realistic. Also, use a medium shade to help blend between lighter and darker shades smoothly (like on her face). Any questions, don't hesitate to ask. 

DUE FEBRUARY 28

FOR WEEK 18:

Transfer the design for Botticelli's Virgin Mary onto your 8x10 claybord using the pin and charcoal method. Lightly outline the design in pencil (or colored pencil) if desired so that it doesn't wipe off in transit to class. Paint the background gold with a cosmetic sponge or with your large flat brush. See slides for instructions. Questions, feel free to ask.

FOR WEEK 14:

Finish applying the 4 thin coats of egg tempera to your panel. Using light colored pastel or colored pencil, draw an apple. Outline the apple with medium gray paint and fill it in with short small strokes. You may hatch or cross hatch or use curved strokes to help form the apple's round shape. Use lighter grey to lighten up the highlight areas, then dark grey for the areas in shadow. Also use dark grey to define the shadow beneath the apple. Using white, add in highlights at the top right of the apple. Using black, define the darkest part of the shadow where the apple meets the background. See photos for reference.
