This course will cover the process of drawing– or 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 that you may need only drawing or only painting materials for this class, depending on your individual needs. All new students will start with drawing. Please contact us prior to purchasing if you have any questions.
