Portraiture in Oil Paint. Alla-Prima Masterclass with Costa DVOREZKY

Dec 2, 2018 (11:00 am - 7:00 pm)
Portrait Painting with Costa Dvorezky.
Alla-Prima Masterclass (8 hours, including 30-minute break after DEMO).

In this Masterclass we will carefully explore the classic method of Alla-Prima with an emphasis on modeling and finish.

Demo – A three-hour demonstration will be given, where student’s can watch the painting process, and hear the thought process which is involved to create a figurative work of art, quickly and with precision.

Break - 30 minutes

Practice – The latter portion of the day will be devoted to creating an underpainting in one colour, focusing on composition, tonal-execution, anatomy and technique. Students will focus on an Alla-Prima painting approach which will allow students to compose a figurative painting with the inspiration of Tuscan Renaissance precision.
