In This Intensive Old Master Study, artist Neadeen Masters takes you along for the journey as she explores the painting concepts and painting techniques used by the Old Master painters from the Dutch Golden Age.
Objectives of the Lesson:
- To explore the methods and reasoning of the Old ‘Landscape’ Master – Jacob van Ruisdael
- To explore the roots of the Venetian method and learn how we can combine and introduce some ‘direct ‘painting’ methods to bring the painting to final completion.
- To develop a painting using layering methods.
- To create color harmony through the use of a tonal underpainting.
- To create texture through visual patterning, i.e. painting the rhythmic ‘boil’ of the clouds.
- To work with a limited palette controlling warm and cool tones to create harmony and balance.
- To study the tonal effects of scumbling, i.e. Painting the water.
- To paint an entire design using brush-mixing methods.
- To have a greater understanding for the concept of the line as it applies to a landscape.
