8 classes: Wednesday Afternoons • October 16–December 11 • 1:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. • $230 (plus $10 tracing materials and master copy fee to Judy at class)
Study the methods of Dutch Master Balthasar van der Ast (1593/4-1657) as we apply sequential layers of oil paint and mediums while closely observing and copying the beauty of his oil painting of a single tulip in a gold-trimmed glass vase with butterfly and waterdrops. You will gain a deeper understanding of paint application, color theory and glazing techniques using Gamblin products that you can employ in your own work. Judy demonstrates each step of the process along with lots of individual instruction in this relaxed information-packed class. A color copy of Ast’s still life is provided for you to trace onto your canvas in the interest of time. For painters with some experience in oil to more advanced painters.
