"Painting Music Online"
Every Thursday
 

“Painting Music” is an intuitive painting and drawing, open session for everyone. No painting or drawing skills are needed. Move your paint as the music tells you... on a canvas or in your sketchbook. I create a one-hour playlist of the different subjects each week. You may paint one painting or 10 or as much as you want. No rules. You may interpret the music as figurative or abstract, anything goes! The camera of your device will be pointed to the working area, so we can also see the progress, and be inspired. After the session, we look at each other's artwork and talk about the process.

Next, she will teach the envelope and block-in, building your perceptual skills to see flat shapes, angles, and distances, and observing light and shadow patterns. Patricia will also lead you through understanding the primary structures of the torso and the basics of proportion, an essential in every figurative artist's toolbox.
