“How do I move from a more skill-based mode of painting into a more personal, stronger, and exploratory way of working?”
This LIVE Eight Week online course is designed to give participants access to different ways of painting, moving from a more naturalistic and objective tradition to a more Modern and subjective ways of working found in the twentieth century avant-garde.
Part Two will be working with the two-dimensional and three-dimensional relationship. How does the mass and form of what we’re looking at impact our marking and painting? How do we explore the 3-D “feel” of the forms we’re looking at?
Examining closely Soutine, Giacometti and Bomberg, I’ll be demonstrating how to work with a variety of exercises based on these painters’ explorations and inventions, such as:
- how to drop into our visual experience and follow the intuitive gesture
- letting the mark stay raw and sensitive
- painting to explore the tactile 3-D “feel” of the motif
- tonal marking as a way to discover structure
We will start by working with Soutine and then move on to Giacometti, and then Bomberg.
For intermediate and advanced. Course limited to 20 participants.
