Blending Method 4 - Block and Blend Learn Layering and Blocking-In Painting Techniques - Block & Blend as it is often called is also a combination of both indirect and direct painting methods. A majority of artists combine both applications to create a single painting. Initial layers are often blended directly, and after this first layer has dried, indirect applications of transparent colors are glazed over opaque layers to assist in the further creation of form. This style of blending also renders a painterly style of brushwork.

If you love landscape painting, you'll really enjoy the second study in this course explores the true Indirect Painting Method:Learn the paint application made popular by the Old Masters. Multiple layers of paint are applied to create form, depth and luminosity. Beginning with transparent applications, the artist first creates the initial layer, next opaque layers are used to facilitate form, and subsequent transparent layers are applied to create the local color of objects.Complete 2 paintings (under-painting landscape and Bell pepper) Purchase here
