I so love painting with Gail McManus and I highly recommend her workshops if you're interested in Gerard Wagner, with whom she studied in Dornach. In this style, EVERY painting is painted as a color story, regardless of whether it has form. The form arises from the living interaction between the colors.

I will try to show some of the stages of each painting and I have notes. But the important thing is to look at the painting in front of you, not to follow step by step what someone else did in their own painting. The concentrated paints we had to use were lemon yellow, vermillion, carmine red, mauve, ultramarine blue, and prussian blue. She had us mix everything else.
If you missed them, here are the notes from the last workshop I did with Gail, which was in 2016. That time I was preparing for the 3rd grade Old Testament Stories block. Some of those OT paintings could actually be used in the Norse Mythology block as well, like the day 4 Sun/Moon (in Norse, this would come at the beginning when they're talking about the wolves chasing the horses and chariots across the sky) and the day 3 Water/Land/Plants (in Norse, this would come at the end when the Earth is reborn after Ragnarok).
I ran out of time to finish this one... you can see it's not in balance yet as much as the others.
I'm adding the links to all of these paintings to my Norse Mythology page as well as my Norse Mythology Ruzuku course.
