Sketch to Studio Painting Workshop with Bernard Dellario
Instructor: Bernard Dellario
Weekend workshop: February 8–February 9
Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Cost: $125 Members, $150 Non-members
Take Your Field Sketch Painting to the Next Level. By using field sketches painted on location you will learn how to use this material as a departure point for a bigger more fully realized studio painting. Students can expect to work on one finished painting. This will be a structured approach session covering the following:
· How to decide on the best composition for your finished painting by using “value plans”
· How to translate your field sketch/final composition into a larger sized canvas
· Instruction on accurately transferring your initial drawing onto a larger surface
· How to maintain the fresh look of your field sketch in your studio painting
Some previous painting experience required. For students that do not have a field sketch painting as source material, a photograph may be used as a point of departure for the larger painting. Although the class will be primarily focused on the oil painting medium, other mediums will be accepted.
