If you want to be a great jazz player - you need to study scales and classical foundations. The same is true to become a great painter. I can't tell you how many students come to me who have had years of art school, have never been "taught" how to paint! But their frustration ends here! Whenever an Artist speaks about a "linage" of instruction, it is a proud declaration of where their knowledge came from. Ours is a fusion of Northern European, Classical Italian and California Impressionism. With this background we can hone in on an individual's choice of style once foundations in painting are achieved.
The first “initiation” exercise that students seeking to Master Classical Oil Painting should accomplish is our Compass Rose exercise. This exercise teaches the student first, basic skills for blending, glazing etc. as well as the Zorn palette of colors, introducing the student to a new way of “seeing.” (Please note Cheryl mentions the next lesson - The Master Copy but that is not part of this video we are working on getting that out soon!)
Students Will Learn
- Renaissance Painting Techniques
- Monochromatic studies
- How to deconstruct a painting
- How to apply color & how to mix paint
- Using mediums
- Glazing Secrets
This course cost most academy students nearly $750 to complete but you are getting for less than half that price!
