Workshop 3

John William Waterhouse: His Painting Method

 

Instructor: mÆstro Michael John Angel

Dates: 29 June - 10 JULY 2020

 

One of the most brilliant of the British Victorian painters, John William Waterhouse RA (1849–1917) worked first in the Academic methods and then developed his own very loose, decorative style to portray classical and Arthurian-legend subject matter.

Workshop students

Born in Rome to English parents who were each painters, Waterhouse’s family moved to London when Waterhouse was five, and he eventually enrolled in the Royal Academy of Art. He soon began focusing on the creation of large canvas works depicting scenes from the daily life and mythology of ancient Rome and of the Arthurian legends. Many of his paintings are based on authors such as Homer, Ovid, Shakespeare, Tennyson and Keats.

Waterhouse Nymphs

In this two-week workshop, you will learn how to emulate Waterhouse’s painting methods by re-creating one of his paintings (these are listed below – the student will chose one of these three and reproduce it as a smaller version, about 70cm wide). Copying paintings is the tried and true, traditional way of honing one’s painting ability.

Copying master paintings under instruction is the fastest way to learn, and the surest way for a painter to improve. Maestro Michael John Angel gives several painting demonstrations throughout the two weeks and teaches the class how to stay in control of the drawing while developing the colour.

Demo

Students also receive various pdf and jpeg send-outs that encapsulate the correct methods of using oil paint. These send-outs explain the different grounds, materials and mediums used in oil painting and also describe the various layers used in traditional underpainting-overpainting techniques.
