THE 19TH-CENTURY NUDE
“Make copies, young man, many copies. You can only become a good artist by copying the masters.”
Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867)
This 3-day workshop introduces you to the essential methods and techniques of 19th-century figure painting by reproducing a master painting from this period.
Copying master paintings as a means of learning how to paint in oils has been a staple component in artists’ training for many centuries. Not only does it help you to learn the principles and practices of the Old Masters, but it also encourages you to see and think like these great painters.
This workshop will show you the standard approach to oil painting – the methods and techniques, tools and materials, best practices and useful tips – which are currently being taught at all of the major realist painting academies in Florence and around the world. Suitable for beginners, this workshop will benefit more advanced and professional artists, who might wish to reinforce some of their skills and knowledge.
