Through The Glass, 16X20, oil on linen
There is still a few spaces available for my workshop "Painting Like a Master" beginning Oct. 17th through Oct. 21st, 2011. If you are a budding Classical-Realist or Novorealist painter, this is the workshop for you! You will learn the techniques of the new and Old Master's using the indirect painting method creating a painting with multiple layers of paint, and the use of various mediums and glazes to achieve the deep and rich luminosity of the painted surface as experienced in the works of Titian, Rembrandt and Rubens.
Each workshop day will focus on a technique used by the Masters. Day one will focus on how to create strong compositions including value studies, lighting, and color harmony. During following days, you will come to a better understanding of your color wheel to achieve color hues, tints, and shades and how to achieve beautiful grays for use in your art works.
A demonstration of the skills needed for that day's work begins at 9. Shapes, edges and values will be emphasized, as well as the creation of a middle layer painting made from opaque colors to establish the lightest and darkest values of your paining. Finally, you will practice various glazing and scumbling techniques used by New and Old Masters including a final glaze layer that modifies the opaque colors to finish your art peace making the surface very rich and luminous. And there will be ample time for discussion, questions and answers during and after workshop hours.
