In this Masterclass we will carefully explore classic method of alla prima with an emphasis on modeling and finish.
Day 1 - Will be devoted to underpainting in one colour, focusing on composition, tonal execution,anatomy and technique.
Day 2 - Will focus on an alla prima painting approach which will allow students to compose a figure painting with the inspiration of Tuscan Renaissance precision.
Though alla prima (the direct manner of finishing a painting while it is wet) is often considered an impressionistic approach, it is also ideal for the careful and thorough modeling which is a hallmark of classical painting. This approach will allow students to thoroughly and efficiently complete a painting without the laborious and time consuming classic approach of glazed layers.
Methods of drawing, paint manipulation and color arrangement will be included and a thorough analysis of the anatomy will be stressed.
Costa will give short demos daily and primarily assist and critique students works throughout each day.
