Required supplies:

For the oil landscape class tone your canvas a warm color. Mix the color with liquin and apply to the canvas.  It should be dry in  8 to 24 hours, depending on the weather. If you draw really well, use burnt sienna thinned with turpenoid to draw right on the canvas panel. If you make a drawing error, use a rag & turpenoid & erase the mistake. For this class you will work on location from direct observation. The Locations are to be announced.
