I have learned to paint portraits by copying the paintings of old masters. Eventually, I have moved on to paint my own realistic portraits, and my favorite subject was my son. I have long abandoned the strive to make my portraits as detailed as possible and choose to paint more expressive faces, but my love for old master paintings still remains and is a source of great inspiration. This class is an exploration of both, how to draw an inspiration from an old master painting and make it more expressive.
Join me on a short excursion into the life of a French academic painter William-Adolphe Bourguereau (November 30, 1825 – August 19, 1905) to be inspired by his painting to create our own.
Bourguereau inspires me in numerable ways – making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body, his use of mythological themes, and in the way he creates skin tones that seam to gleam like delicate silk.
I have made an attempt through my own study to loosely reinvent one of his portrait paintings to create my own. Even though it might seam that I have used many colors in this painting, I have only really used three, plus gesso. After signing up, you receive full supply list. Class starts May 20th.
In this class I will take you through the process of sketching a portrait to create a pleasing composition on the canvas. Choosing and mixing the right colors for this particular skin tone. Blending and applying colors an tones in such a way that they create the appropriate contrast, smoothness and texture in a face.
We will then complete the background, hands and an object to complete the story of our painting.
