Painting Techniques - Grisaille and Glazing

Where: 363 Washington Avenue, Downingtown, PA.  Convenient parking is available and instructions will be sent upon registration. 

When: Tuesdays, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm from January 29, 2019 through March 5, 2019 (6 sessions)

Materials: Adrian will supply each artist with a 12 x 12 inch board. Further items to be supplied by the student are listed below.

Experience: This class is accessible to all levels of drawing proficiency and class size is limited to 5 people.

Bring your brushes and paints to the comfortable and informal surroundings of Adrian’s 1894 Victorian home and gain new insights into the Renaissance masters and how they achieved their color magic!

Adrian offers each artist (beginners to professionals) six weeks of technical analysis along with real-time demonstrations vividly explaining the three essential stages of Renaissance oil painting. Beginning with a classic still life set up, each artist will complete a basic drawing and then move, when satisfied, to a grey toned underpainting in oil. After finishing this “grisaille”, many transparent and colorful oil glazes are added.

Adrian will guide your progress, taking into account each artist’s personal background and individual taste.

Materials list to be supplied by the student:

1 tube of black oil paint, 1 tube of white oil paint (I recommend carbon black and flake white)

4 synthetic hair paint brushes - round sizes 2, 4, and 6 and flat size 8. (Lowe-Cornell, Princeton or Robert Simmons are all good, inexpensive brushes)

Paint rags

Pencils and erasers

Mineral spirits or turpentine

Oil painting medium of your choice (I use Winsor & Newton Liquin Original)
