Direct Painting the Portrait from a Live Model

Juan Martinez 

A THREE DAY WORKSHOP

Date: October 9, 10 and 11, 2020

Price: $400 (plus GST)

This 3-day workshop will focus on a “head-and-shoulders” oil study painted from a live model using a direct painting method.  We will use a single, long-term pose for the duration of the workshop which offers an opportunity for deep exploration of drawing and, importantly, of form painting. (i.e., three-dimensional illusionism).  The long pose approach allows participants a deeper dive into proper, relational “seeing” which is what truly creates and develops visual understanding (perception).  As the work progresses, Juan will discuss relevant aspects of structure, including anatomy and morphology (planes of the face and head) as well as the various rhythms of colour found in representational painting.  Brushwork and colour mixing/choosing are fundamental aspects of the workshop, too.

 

Direct painting borrows from the layering methods used by most of the Old Masters and 19th c. academicians, as well as from the alla prima or bravura schools that feature a largely wet-into-wet paint application. Thus, direct painting is really a “total” approach: a synthesis of techniques which allows for efficiency of execution, yet does not compromise any principles of quality, craftsmanship, or draughtsmanship that fine painting possesses.

Plein Air Oil Painting

Kadin T. Goldberg

A THREE DAY WORKSHOP

Date: September 25, 26 and 27th, 2020

Price: $400 (plus GST)

In this 3-day intensive workshop with award-winning landscape painter Kadin Goldberg, students will learn how to simplify the infinitely complex landscape and create luminous, lifelike oil paintings on location.  The main focus of this workshop will be understanding and capturing light and color.

 

Painting the landscape outside is incredibly challenging. Kadin will help his students to simplify the experience by breaking down plein air painting into a step-by-step process of smaller, manageable tasks.  Each day will begin with a short lecture on a specific topic, followed by a live demonstration.  Each consecutive exercise will build upon the previous one to help students become more comfortable painting the landscape outdoors.  Ample time will be given to students to work on their own paintings and individual critique will be provided.
 

Among the many topics discussed will be: drawing, value, hue, chroma, design, edge control as well as paint application.  By the end of this fun and informative course, you will have all the tools necessary to push your art to the next level!
