|Douglas Flynt goes in for a close up.|
This past summer, I had the pleasure of attending a Douglas Flynt workshop at Grand Central Art Academy (GCA) in NYC and along with 13 other participants, explored classical techniques for painting still lifes.
| Using a hand-held palette, Flynt showed|
students how to mix color strings
|A fellow student works on her still life|
down his process into manageable, defined stages that include: blocking in; utilizing an oil transfer; creating a monochromatic underpainting and an Ébauche and premixing color strings, to name a few.
