Another Major Sotheby’s auction is coming up April 18th, 2008. Bouguereau is increasingly the star of every important 19th century European painting auction in New York.
This past October the six Bouguereaus set new records yielding roughly 35% of the $26,000,000 taken in at that auction which included 235 lots. In the current sale there are yet another 6 Bouguereau’s as well as a major Gerome masterpiece and important works by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Vibert, L’hermitte, Torriglia, Gilbert, Horace Vernet, Rudolph Ernst, Eugene Von Blaas, and several of Bouguereau’s students among 296 total lots.

ARC Master™ Paul McCormack 5 Day Watercolor Workshop

Published March 28, 2008


ARC Master, Paul McCormack will be teaching a 5 Day Watercolor Workshop at ARC Appoved™ Atelier,LAAFA-the Los Angelos Academy of Figurative Art in Van Nuys, California.
5 Days: Thur-Mon, April 17-21, 2008
10am - 5pm


"Take this opportunity to learn from nationally recognized portrait artist, Paul W. McCormack. Students will be working from a live model as Paul demonstrates all the techniques and principles needed to execute a watercolor portrait with a luminous glow. With demonstrations and lectures given each day students are taken through a step-by-step procedure…watch, listen, learn, and then apply. Combined with individual attention, critiques and hands on instruction (with permission of the student), students will have the opportunity to create a finished portrait under Paul’s guidance.

By Instructor: Paul McCormack

For the exacting realism found in Paul’s work, most of day one will focus primarily on the drawing aspect of the portrait. With instruction on the proper use of angles, plumb lines and relative measurement, students will learn how to acquire correct proportions in order to achieve a likeness of the model. As the course continues, this intensive 5-day workshop will then focus on painting. Lectures will include basic color theory, how to see and execute correct value relations, proper treatment of edges, and so much more. Demonstrations in watercolor techniques will include wet into wet, glazing, and Paul’s signature dry brush technique. Beginners and advanced students alike will certainly benefit from the experience."
