MICHAEL HARDING “HANDS ON” OIL PAINT DEMONSTRATION
May 8, 2016 1-4pm
Our Patron Member Michael Harding from Michael Harding Handmade Artist Oil Colours will give a demonstration and host a talk about his wonderful colors. This FREE event is geared for the artist who is interested in understanding why the quality of art materials used is important to the value of their painting.
Michael is extremely passionate about educating artists on oil paint and quality art materials hence his non-stop quest of meeting with artists directly to share his knowledge.
This workshop will focus on accurately drawing and painting the figure. Students will execute a detailed drawing of the model and learn how to employ a monochromatic block-in to properly identify the values of the subject. Once the values are established, a full application of color will be applied using thin glazes of transparent watercolor. The objective of the workshop is to demonstrate how a methodical approach increases the depth and sense of realism in paintings.
