Urban Landscape Painting from Photographs
At least 9 reference photos, on regular 8.5”x11” paper in color that you took
They can be of different scenes, or of the same subject matter but in drastically different compositions. Cropped and color corrected if necessary.
Toned canvases or canvas boards that match the aspect ratio of your reference photos
Slightly larger unstreched canvas or prepared paper taped to hardboard would also work. Please keep in mind that we’re making one finished painting each week: 10”x20”, 14”x14”, or 12”x16” would be a good size to start.
Your usual supplies for painting with Limited Palette + Odorless Thinner (Turpenoid or Art Treehouse’s Biobased Artist Thinner). No mediums please.
Small sketchbook/notebook and something to write/draw with
6” one-hand bar clamp to attach your reference photo to your easel (Or a hardboard to tape your reference photo and unstreched canvas/paper)
18” ruler or a tape measure (optional)
