S62. Learning Techniques through Still Life Painting

S62. Learning Techniques through Still Life Painting

Learn how to approach an oil painting from start to finish. Begin with drawing the still life in the sight-size method, transfer it to canvas, and paint in layers until the objects have form and detail. Learn traditional atelier-style methods, from using a campitura, to dead color, first painting, and second painting, all working from life.  Demonstrations will be given on the layout and methodical uses of the full-color palette, as well as lectures and handouts on mediums, steps of the process, hue/value/chroma, color mixing, palette care and varnishing. The goal of the course is to understand the observational painting process and come away with a realistic still-life painting. Recommended for artists looking to create more realistic work. Prior experience with painting in oil is not necessary. Supply list provided.
