Workshop 4

Portraits and Still Life as Painted by the 17th-century Dutch Masters: Jan Vermeer, Judith Leyster, Jacob van Oost, Willem Kalf, Pieter von Andraat

 

Instructor: MÆstro Michael John Angel

Dates: 1st July – 12th July, 2019

 

The 17th century in Holland is known as The Golden Age of Dutch Painting, and properly so: their paintings are among the best ever painted. It is also true that these artists were professional painters and had an efficient way of creating these astonishingly beautiful works.

classmates

In this two-week workshop, you will learn how to efficiently recreate these luminous paintings. Under maestro Angel's instruction, you will learn about the Dutch painters' attitude to edges and how they built the illusion of form. You will see, too, how the Dutch used glazes and value composition to give the impression that the painting is more vibrant than Nature.

copy

These copies will be created at the actual size of the originals. Here is a sample of the process:

class

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.

students

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.
