Scott develops the tonal underpainting from the prior episode into a small study.
Once you have a tonal underpainting, continue to gain familiarity with your subject by developing a study.
As a note, for our reference, a study takes composition into consideration.
As you expand your gesture into a study you can begin by framing the parameters of what you want as a composition. Consider also:
Try to imply shapes without over-defining.
Note: Five types of light is touched upon in this episode; more on this topic will be discussed in the next series.
Develop a list of the ideas you want to try after watching the episode.
Select one or more tonal under painting(s). To build upon your gesture ideas, begin to think about composition.
Develop your understanding of the scene by adding variety as described in Key Takeaways.
Look over the few works that you have done. Decide which one(s) you like and why. The why is important here (write it down).
Oil or gouache paints.
