Color Field Sketchbook

10 Jan

Dick Blick has a wonderful feature on their website.  They have art lessons for educators.  They are in PDF platforms and many have easy to follow videos.  The one that caught my eye today is making your own color field sketchbook.  They give instructions on how to do “Stain Painting” a technique used by artists Helen Frankenthaler and Morris Louis.  This is a fun and easy technique.  Just remember not to get too carried away with mixing your paint colors or you will get a mud color. Here is the link for the PDF file.  And for the video go to Dick Blick and follow the link.Helen FrankenthalerHelen Frankenthaler
