Oil painting course, old master techniques is designed to introduce each of the key steps in the painting process with comprehensive one-to-one tuition.

We use high quality Old Holland oil colours in our painting classes.

 

INTRODUCTION TO OIL PAINTING & PORTRAITURE (GRISAILLE METHOD)

Beginning with the drawing stage through to the final glazes all stages of painting process will be discussed and practiced. Instructor will individually assist each student as they progress on their study. The emphasis is on the creation of a solid, three-dimensional illusion.

GRISAILLE

Grisaille method is the most systematic approach to painting whether it be a still life, portrait or landscape. It is a term used for a monochrome painting using shades of grey.

It may be painted for its own sake or used as under-painting.

We are using this technique to introduce students to the art of mixing paint beginning with two pigments (black and white) before moving on to the complexities of colour.

EXERCISE

By using Plane Head (study of the planes making up the human face and used for learning facial structure as a preparation for portrait classes) students will carefully paint the planes, observing edges and tonal relationships of each plane.

Than they will paint the model head using a monochrome pallet paying careful attention to the tonal relationships and fine edges with focus on the creation of a solid, three-dimensional illusion.

OUTCOME

Goal of this master class is that students learn:

  • the subtleties of tonal relationships
  • edge manipulation
  • structure of the face
  • creation of a three-dimensional illusion
