Still Life Painting
Students will learn how to approach an oil painting from start to finish. We start with drawing the still life in the sight-size method, transfer it to canvas, and paint in layers until the objects have form and detail. This course teaches traditional atelier-style methods, from using a campitura, to dead color, first painting, and second painting, all working from life.
