Beginning Painting // experimental painting project // for Weds March 29th

You should have your canvas primed with gesso
. I left two cans in the Mineral Spirits cabinet w/ a " X :) " on the lids.
There is an example of the gesso application with the two cans as well.

You should have sketches of what you want to do for your project
. Remember this is a quick project with lots of freedom but you need to stay focus and work through ideas quickly.

You should have a color palette / scheme mapped out- use the worksheet questions (on the hand out) and below:

Color Palette Work Sheet:

1. What type of palette will you be using?

2. What colors will you be using?

3. How will these colors operate in the context of your painting?

4. Make a sample color palette for future reference.
