Virtual Art Academy Students Showcase

We have so many students at the VAA who dedicate all their time to improving their painting skills with the Apprentice Program. Each month I am going to share some of their paintings so you can see the wonderful work they are producing.

Re: Virtual Art Academy Students Showcase

The way you apply the paint to your painting is important. For example, paint your darks using thin paint and your lights using thicker paint. By keeping your dark areas thin you prevent light from bouncing off the paint surface and drawing attention to itself when you don't want it to. On the other hand, thick paint in the lights helps give the lights more luminosity and enhances the painting. You can see in one of our student's paintings, they have managed to keep the darks thin and the lights thicker to create the detail.

Re: Virtual Art Academy Students Showcase

One of our students summary painting project for workshop E:
This is a nice project showing a very carefully thought out notan, and a final painting that has an interesting complementary color harmony, with an interesting set of shapes with good shape distinction. Note the interesting negative shape formed by the roofs and the sky.


The cooler colors in the background give the painting atmospheric perspective, as well as the accurate use of vanishing points. The bottom of the walls of the houses on the street provide the baselines.
