Painting Autumn in Sepia Tones

Sepia tones are made from the family of burnt siennas, ochres and umbers, all tertiary colors that make great paintings; Andrew Wyeth used them to add moodiness. In the morning, we will do multiple short studies to demonstrate the range and moods that sepia tones can make. During the afternoon, we’ll apply what we’ve learned to make one longer painting. There will be plenty of demonstrations and insightful critiques. Joan will provide tips on mixing subtle value changes and color tones. Watercolorists as well as oil and acrylic painters will enjoy using these universal colors, called the “neutrals” to create great landscape paintings. All levels are welcome.
