Tutor: Francesca Berlingieri Maxwell

From Caravaggio to Vermeer, to Toulouse Lautrec, many painters have used tonal contrast to quickly build depth and volume from a dark background to the highlights. Create multiple samples in preparation for recreating a detail from a work by an old master on canvas. Learn to prepare the canvas, create preliminary sketches, transfer the drawing to canvas, and how to build the volume and colour through layers of paint. For speed of drying acrylic paint will be used. Some drawing and painting experience is required.
