REAL LIVE PAINTING WITH ANDREA J. SMITH JULY 4 - 6, 2014
PAINTING LIKE THE GREAT MASTERS
Australian born, Andrea has spent over 25 years in Europe and America. She finalised her art training in Florence, moved to New York for several years and since 2008 has based herself in Rome...
This workshop will focus on creating the illusion of 3D in portraiture. We will address the use of tonal scale, edge quality, and colour relationships to render form.
Students will be taken through the basics of these theories, firstly with a charcoal sketch, and finally through the application of these concepts using oil paints.
After a brief introduction students will begin working on their own portrait in charcoal directly on the toned canvas. We will address the most basic fundamentals of the portrait through an accurate linear drawing of the contour outline and the shadow shapes that are contained within.
When this is successfully achieved we will begin painting. I will explain how to lay out a palette and the advantages of using a limited palette rather than an open palette approach. Students will then begin working by laying in the first pass.
Subsequent layers are then applied with specific attention to the hierarchy of the established value scale and the creation of space through colour saturation, opaque lights and emphasis on chroma.
Students should complete the class with a fully rendered small portrait study.
