No class November 25.
In this course, participants will work alongside the instructor as they are taken through six essential steps to making a still life painting.
Step 1: Composition and Studio Setup
Step 2: Value Study on Brown Paper
Step 3: Color study
Step 4: Block-In / Transfer Drawing
Step 5: First Pass in full color
Step 6: Final Pass
Step 7: Glazing and Finishing touches
Students will work steadily to finish each of the 6 steps so as to get to the finishing of a still-life in the allotted time. The course will emphasize finishing as much as it will focus on each step along the way. Each week Liz will provide an example of the stages indicated above. The students are expected to participate by making a work in the same manner. Individual critiques will follow, and an explanation of the next week’s topic will be discussed towards the end of class.
