Painting Portraits Alla Prima - Rembrandt Laughing
Buy and Download >
In my new release Painting Portraits ALLA PRIMA - Rembrandt you begin
with a very loose gestural strike. Beginning loose (but also striking your
shapes accurately) you work towards a more resolved articulation of form. It is
nigh impossible to go from tight to loose. Always work from General to Specific!
The focus of this workshop is value spotting. This is laying small spots of color
next to another to effect three-dimensional form. Rembrandt was THE
consummate master of value spotting.
This workshop is much, much more than 120 minutes of video! Video is
excellent for conveying the pace and application of paint but it falls short of
deeper technical instruction. That's why I have written the accompanying E-
book. It fills in the gaps.
You also need to measure your progress and that's why I am also including
full-size step-by-step images to compare your painting with mine and to ensure
that you are on-track.
PLUS I am including my Atlas of Facial Anatomy and the 90-minute Anatomy
video! Because you simply must know your anatomy to reach the higher levels
of portrait painting.
PLUS the 30-minute video of the Pochade. A pochade is a small thumbnail
sketch (usually about 6x8") wherein you work out the general composition,
light/dark pattern and color scheme.
AND BEST OF ALL ... FEEDBACK! The lack of feedback is the single
biggest hurdle of learning at home. We are often blind to our most glaring
weaknesses. I intend to correct that with a written critique of your painting that
will guide you on how to improve.
AND EVEN BETTER! ... until Thursday, May 7th I am offering this workshop
at a steep introductory discount. For only US$67.00! That's over 50% off the
regular price of US$149.95.
AND a 30-day Guarantee. If this workshop is not for you then I will refund in
whole. No DVD's to pack-up. No trip to the Post Office. Just send me an email.
