Join Professor Hall Groat II within his home studio located in upstate New York, just outside of Binghamton as he paints a lovely silver bowl of red cherries. He paints this luminous piece on an 8×10 in. panel that has already been prepared with a transparent warm ground. Learn through this informative demo how to begin the painting through a transparent imprimatura undertone using Burnt Umber, and then indicating where the lights are striking by wiping away the paint with a crumpled up paper towel back to the panel. See firsthand how he mixes the various shades of red and gray directly on his glass palette.
He begins this demonstration with a detailed description of how he arranges his limited palette, consisting of nine colors including Titanium White. Similar to all of Hall’s video lessons, there exists a solid balance between various close up camera shots as he’s mixing the paint and then applying various brushstrokes to develop the piece. Hall even takes the time on several occasions to demonstrate how he uses a glass scraper to clean his glass palette and then reuse the warm gray to paint with.
