How to Paint Bokeh Backgrounds

How to Paint Bokeh Backgrounds

In this class we will learn how to paint bokeh backgrounds. Bokeh is the out of focus effect often seen on photographs. This effect works well for paintings too.

For the class you will need :

1) a 400mm x 300mm canvas (roughly 16" x 12"). The canvas can either be a bought black canvas or one you have painted black using acrylic paint. If you are painting your canvas black, paint in a thin layer so that there is no paint texture on the canvas.
2) Set of bristle brushes
3) Finer liner and a rigger brush
4) Titanium White, Sap Green, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Red, Raw Umber and a deep pink colour like Rose, Crimson or Magenta for the tulip.

Patrons can download the reference pdf and sketch templates below.
