The final edits.
This week we turn our attention to final editing and finishing your paintings.
In this session, we will look at a simple process for assessing if a work is finished or not. We will explore our mindset around finishing work and finally, we will look at finding titles for the work and professional finishing.
You will have the chance to get group feedback on some finished work and complete any final edits.
For this week you will need:
Please bring two paintings with you to the session that are either close to completion or finished.
A selection of acrylic paint and brushes.
A selection of drawing and line-making tools. Gloss medium if you have it available.
Here is the PDF with the instructions for the exercises during the session. You may wish to have this to hand either on-screen or printed at the session.
Here is the video where I am editing the painting.
Next is the recording of the teaching session.
Here are some sketchbook journal ideas for the next week. Feel free to do as much or as little as you want.
