Learn To Paint A Ballerina Dress

Ballerina Dress Painting

This painting is a self portrait of Clina Polloni student Labannya Samanta. The challenge is to get a perfect definition of light and shadow, creating the many colors tones to accomplish the folding of the close.

Instructions and Progression:

  1. You start by drawing and painting a good under-paint. It was done in acrylics because they dry faster and it gives you the opportunity to paint immediately. Draw with your acrylics the light and shade.
  2. Continue with oils, light areas first, then medium tone and finally shading colors. Blend these colors very softly to create a fine transition

Brushes, multi-purpose, polyvalent, from the finest 0 to 6.
For Oil paintings, the best media is Refined Linseed Oil with Refined Turpentine. To clean the brushes Turpernoi. Glass container to mix media.
Easel (a simple table metal easel is fine).
Paper towel.
Plastic plate to mix colors or a Paper Palette.

Red Apple Painting Class

Red Apple Painting Class

Painting Instructions:

  1. In this painting I did an under-paint of Yellow Ochre with a lot of water to be absolved by the canvas, using acrylics because they dry faster. The under paint is very important because you are continuing to draw with colors and defining light and shade in your final painting.

Pet Portrait of Brown Chow Chow

Pet Portrait of Brown Chow Chow

Canvas: 11″x14″.

Instructions and Progression:

  1. Draw and paint the under-paint: It was done in acrylics because they dry faster and it gives you the opportunity to paint immediately. Use a washed of Yellow Ochre, but be sure to saturate the canvas. Also you can draw the eyes with black acrylic.
  2. Paint the background: In his portrait I painted the background in dark colors because I wanted to highlight her beautiful brown/copper hair to show well with contrast.
  3. Continue with Bibo’s face: Put special detail in the eyes, hair and nose. It will give you a better understanding of her features
  4. Paint Bibo’s body: Taking advantage of the texture and the many tones of her hair. The hair was painted with a #1 pro-white brush using it sideways, look at picture.

Colors:

  1. Titanium White
  2. Flesh, Portrait Pink or Pale Pink
  3. Cadmium Yellow Light
