La Materia: Painting with the Earth Palette

La Materia: Painting with the Earth Palette
In this five-day workshop, Lucy MacGillis shares her love for hand- made, natural paint. She begins by mixing raw earth pigments from Italy with linseed oil. Working from life in the landscape, participants learn how to create their own paint and mix the colors of the limited earth palette and are guided in looking closely at the tones they see before them in the landscape. By limiting the range of colors, painters create their own tones and use the relationships of juxtaposing colors to give them more force. Using the palette knife, students work directly from observation of the landscape with the colors Venetian red, burnt sienna, terra di sienna, yellow ochre, Naples yellow, earth green, ultramarine blue, Paynes grey, burnt and raw umber, Roman black earth, and titanium white.
