This course will cover the process of painting a still-life in oil from graphite drawing to finished painting that employs a simple model of light and how it affects the hue, value, and chroma of a surface. Topics covered include: composing a still-life, drawing using 2-D and 3-D shape/form mapping, transferring a drawing to canvas, relating values using a small poster study, ébauche (under-painting) technique, basic color theory and palette organization. The class is open to all levels of experience. Students may also choose to do a Master Copy.
PLEASE NOTE: Class on August 3 and August 10 will end at 1pm. Class on these dates will be 3 hours instead of 4. Your tuition reflects this adjustment.
Please note that you may need only drawing or only painting materials for this class, depending on your individual needs. Please check with your instructor before you purchase materials.
