Vignette on dark paper

 A simple way to simplify a scene is to vignette the painting. It is helpful to use a tinted paper that compliments the picture. If you don’t have tinted sanded paper, you can use an acrylic or watercolor underpainting. Please bring your own backboard, paper, and tape. (Larry has sanded pastel paper available for purchase by the sheet if needed. Some are in neutral colors. He also has colored suede matboard to use for pastels.) You will receive a handout of instructions. Cost of Open Paint Thursdays is $5.
