Studio Incamminati Workshop Day 3

Today in the Studio Incamminati workshop, Color Study: Still Life and Figure Painting for Art Educators, taught by Natalie Italiano, we continued to learn to see color by looking at color relationships. Each day the still life set-ups have gotten progressively more complex; today's had boxes and simple still life objects, which created many planes of light on color. In Natalie's demo above, she is emphasizing laying in the color masses in relationship to the surrounding masses.

This class is very organized, sequential and well thought out, as well as fun! Today we received handouts on the color philosophies of Henry Hensche, Nelson Shanks (the founder of Studio Incamminati) and Lois Griffel (a student of Hensche's).

These are the 3 color studies I completed today.
