We thought you might want to see some of the work just completed at our first Art of the Masters workshop last week in Gilbert, Arizona. Karen and I were so proud of our students’ success thus far. Here are some pictures:
Shelly H. in early stages of drawing At the Fountain, after William-Adolphe Bouguereau, 1897
Shelley B. drawing The Laundress, after Jean-Baptiste Greuze, 1761
Teachers Marsha Gilliam (in the mirror) and Karen Schmeiser, with student Shelly H.
Completed charcoal drawing~
Completed drawing with partial verdaccio underpainting~
Below are the students’ drawings alongside actual paintings by Greuze and Bouguereau. When completed, students’ works will look like these original works, and Shelley and Shelly will have learned much about seeing, drawing and painting during this process of copying the Masters:
We hope you enjoyed seeing some student work, and hope you will be able to join us for our next event. Where else can new artists get a five-day workshop with two teachers for $489? We are in this to perpetuate the systems and processes of the Old Masters, and are planning another workshop in the fall, to be announced.
YOU CAN CAN CAN do this too,
Marsha and Karen 🙂
