Workshop 4

THE CLASSIC PAINTING PROCEDURE:
WORKING WITH IMPASTO & GLAZES

 

Instructor: MÆstro Michael John Angel

Dates: 2 - 13 July 2018

 

The use of glazes and impasto has been standard practice among the masters for much of the last 500 years. The correct application of these great techniques was almost lost during the 20th century, but is now experiencing a welcome comeback.

 

Copying master paintings is the fastest way to learn, and the surest way for a painter to improve. In this workshop, the students work from a painting by such greats as Rembrandt, van Dyck and Bouguereau to learn the process of painting with impasto, half-pastes (mezzo pasto) and glazes. Part of the “secret” is in the method of underpainting used.

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.

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.
