In this 21 minute video, I demonstrate how to paint an artist's mannequin in acrylic. Emphasis is on mixing, establishing, and applying a range of values, especially the creation of highlights and shadows from tints and shades in order to create the illusion of a monochromatic 3-D form. I hope you'll find the tone conversational but informative.
This demo or tutorial is very specific to a challenge I had given my Art Foundations students, but my intention is that you find it helpful for teaching your students to paint any cylindrical form.
