Learn To Paint Copper Objects For Still Life Painting
Creat Perfect Shines, Tarnish and Old Details!
Learn How to paint metals for still life painting: Explore two different styles of 'copper' metal surfaces. Two different subjects, one describing shiny and highly reflective, the other dull aged copper. The compositions are kept simple to focus on painting the metal surface in these two different ways. Copper is a popular metal, its appeal is both because of its reflective surface, its warm color and the wonderful 'patina' it develops with age. Paint both of these looks so each can be included in future still life studies.

Painting different metal surfaces is very important in still life compositions. This is a very nice class, and well worth the price. Susan is definitely a very good and professional artist. She cares about her students' progress. My personal recommendation though would be to take Sue's basic blending class before taking this one, because it teaches you how to blend objects of different shapes, how to move your brush, etc. When I took the basic blending class, this copper painting class was just SO much easier to comprehend. Each new class after that one added on to my basic knowledge of blending. My next goal is silver! :)
