Watch this short clip of  a demo of what we will be focused on this session. Rocks!

Painting rocks is a great way to learn and practice the use of lights and shadows to create different shape rocks. I’ve simplified these lessons so that anyone can learn how to do this.

Students Class Demonstration 5 Oil Painting by Artist Joan A Brown

Students Class Demonstration 5 Oil Painting by Artist Joan A Brown is one of the only demonstrations I did showing what can be done using the palette-knife tool. Using a palette knife give more texture in a painting and I wanted to show students another look and feel to the work they could create. As per usual, it created using a very limited palette of red, yellow and blue; plus black and white. It is an original oil painting (not a print). which was painted on canvas sheet using professional GRUMBACHER oils.

Students Class Demonstration 3

This one of my favourite CLASS DEMONSTRATIONS. I love the way the blue hues show in this piece and give the painting the feel I was aiming for.

Demo 3 shows an interesting rock island with foliage growing on top. Students Class Demonstration 3 Oil Painting by Artist Joan A Brown landscape has a monochromatic theme, composed mainly of blues hues resulting in a cool quiet mood. As with all my demonstrations, I created this demo using a very limited palette. It is an original oil painting (not a print). which was painted on canvas sheet using professional GRUMBACHER oils.

Students Class Demonstration 2 Oil Painting by Artist Joan A Brown

Students Class Demonstration 2

This painting is typical of the kind of landscape I teach in my classes. This demonstration landscape painting has a basic sky, distant foliage and foreground trees as well as the reflections they create in the water. I added a few pebbles and stones for variety and to help make the foreground more interesting.

I created Students Class Demonstration 2 Oil Painting by Artist Joan A Brown demo using a very limited palette consisting of only the 3 primary colors. Class Demo II was painted using professional GRUMBACHER oils on canvas panel.
