Students will have 4 weeks to finish one painting. The painting will start with the foundational underpainting technique of “Grisaille”, using raw umber. After establishing basic drawing and construction, students will follow with a limited color palette, finalizing with glazing. Emphasis of this course will also be on synthesizing indirect painting techniques with a strong facility of drawing as well as exploration of limited color and variety of paint application. One painting will be done from a live model set-up based on a Rembrandt painting.
