Linda Dellandre Demo March 4, 2017 (Click a photo for larger view and arrows to advance)
Watching Linda create the essence of a landscape painting in so short a time is almost like watching the popular time-lapse videos. But she is talking, instructing and painting all at the same time.
Linda began her demo with a presentation on color, from analogous to splits and all in between, simplifying the color wheel in everyday language.
Her demo painting began with squiggles and swipes of color, softly blended together with her famous 49 cent tool, all intended to lead to a subtle, unstructured underpainting. Her drawing was loose, almost non-specific, which lends itself to a painterly finish. Get the darks in, establishing your patterns of light and dark. Gradually paint big shapes into smaller shapes until you finally get down to putting in the tree holes. Linda paints the sky last, with one more tip: vary the color of the sky not only across, but also up and down, just as nature does.
