Teaching of oil painting by practising the representation of the living model, in order to acquire the pictorial bases or to widen one’s technique.
Human representation, with its demand for accurate proportions, its appreciation of values and its search for expressiveness, offers an inexhaustible source of possibilities for approaching painting.
Touch, colour, drawing, form/counter-form, painted sketches, light, impasto, context: all the technical and sensitive aspects are covered.
The oil technique, with its supple modelling and slow drying, allows students to revisit and correct their studies during painting sessions, improving their practice and their perception of reality.
Painting teaches us to look. This course requires some knowledge of life drawing.
You will need to bring your own equipment (a list will be sent to you when you enrol).
