For intermediate to advanced students. Fundamental understanding of using oil paint required.
The focus of this class provides initial or further introduction to the steps taken and principles applied to the art of a still life painting. This includes the conception of a visual idea for a painting; arrangement and organizing of a still life — considering values, hues, and chromas; the execution of a coherent, helpful charcoal drawing with which to compose the stuff within the picture frame; the execution of a lay-in or “start” in oil; what to consider while pressing on towards the finish, and how to look cool doing it.
Why Richard Paints (from his website)The divine medium of oil paint allows me to isolate myself from society in my tiny studio while wearing whatever outfit I desire while telling my stories. Whether I am painting portrait, still life, or landscape, these painted stories always involve monkeys. While these mischievous monkeys are never actually shown in my work they are always implied.
