This class will show you how to paint glass and reflective objects with ease.
Transparency and Reflections Are Much Easier Than It Seems.
Both require good observation, a way to organize the reflections and the distortions of the objects that are seen through glass. It’s easier than it seems. This class will show you how.
November 17, 2020 – This week the focus is on showing transparency
There is no pre-class work this week.
The key to showing transparency capturing what is seen through the object including the distortions caused by looking through glass. We’ll go over some examples, and have some follow along demos
November 24, 2020 – This week we’ll bring reflections into the mix.
The pre-work assignment is to do studies of reflections and transparency in simple objects. You’ll send the studies to the instructor for comment and advice before the third week of class.
We’ll review the studies and answer questions. Then we’ll paint this in class.
December 1, 2020 – This week it’s a focus on reflective, non-transparent objects
This week you’ll paint a more complex composition of reflective objects from direct observation. The first part of the process is to do small studies focused on small sections of the set up. These studies and the painting to the instructor for comment and advice before the third week of class.
We’ll review the pre-class work and answer questions. Then we’ll work on a composition project together.
December 8, 2020 – This is the week we try to pull it all together.
Again you’ll paint a complex composition of transparent and non-transparent reflective objects from direct observation. The first part of the process is to do small studies focused on small sections of the set up. These studies and the painting to the instructor for comment and advice before the third week of class.
