Class Description

Live Class Starts In:


In this live class series we will paint a classic French Villa scene.

The idea with the class is to add some lovely texture to the scene in order to add a fantastic 3D effect to the painting.

It promises to be an incredibly fun live class series (I suspect it is going to take 3 live lessons to complete, possibly 4), join me for this fun project.

You can see a timer counting down to the start of the live class above.

I will be working on a 16″ x 20″ canvas, you are welcome to follow along using a different size.

We will be using texture paste (not gel) in the class so you will need a tub of that for this class. You can see what my Texture Paste looks like HERE. It is crack filler purchased from my local hardware store.

Although I can’t be certain of the exact colours we will be using. I do however estimate that we will use these colours:

Yellow Ochre
Burnt Sienna
Cadmium Yellow
French Ultramarine
Sap Green
Raw Umber
Paynes Grey
Titanium White

The brushes I estimate we will use is a set of bristle brushes and my trusty soft filbert

Part 1 – Creating Depth using Texture Paste

Part 2 – Painting the Back Wall

Part 3 – Painting the Windows

Part 4 – Painting the Shutters & Flower Boxes

Part 5 – Painting the Car & Road

Note – When you purchase this class, you get access to ALL the live classes that make up this project. (3 or 4) as well as the class replays

    I am familiar with the use of texture paste from Paintbasket’s “Big Five” series and this class extends the skills of its use. As usual, Nolan covers every little detail leaving very few questions from the live audience. I am so looking forward to the rest of the series and to be able to review the classes at any time convenient to me.

    It felt very much like the old days at Paint Basket. I felt at home again. Thank you indeed!!! Diana (May lynn)

    PS: I know the technique from the Big Five, but, it was a good refresher.
