Dance at Bougival
In this class series you will paint the famous Dance at Bougival by Renoir. The idea is to learn how to render folds in fabric as well as how he painted in an impressionistic style.
We will not try to replicate the painting exactly, rather discover the techniques Renoir used to create the painting and learn to to use those techniques as well.
I will paint in oil, but you are welcome to follow along in acrylic.
This is a great class for intermediate and up artists.
For the class you will need:
1) Canvas with 2:1 proportion
2) Paint Brushes -set of bristle brushes as well as fine liners
3) Paints - I estimate using these colours: Titanium White, French Ultramarine, Sap Green, Cadmium Yellow, Raw Umber, Yellow Ochre and Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson.
Please transfer the painting outlines to the canvas before class.
Thank you for this very instructive and enjoyable lesson.
As you could see I only painted the dancing couple. I wanted to learn the details of faces and folds. I had fun with it for sure but got hung up on trying to get it perfect. Had a hard time with the face. I could not get that coquettish look on the female.
Your classes are always easy to follow and I enjoy doing them.
