Discussion of materials and overview of the methodology.

 

Preparation of the panel or canvas.; mixing gessos  

 

Students begin by drawing on the prepared ground with supplied pencils. Emphasis on draftsmanship: form, value, and detail.

rendered shadows (chiaroscuro)

 

Imprimatura : its role as a preparation for the lights  

Introduction to the preparation of emulsion: formula and use.

 

Working up the lights: Using tempera emulsion and white pigment, the student will model the forms and define the value range, from highlights to cool middletones.  

 

Working up the darks: A similar process is used with umbers to continue the modeling process from dark to middletone.

 

Introduction to glazing and scumbling: the application of transparent oil glazes over the neutral tempera "monochrome" begins.  

 

Working with the glazes: a judicious juxtaposition of temperatures, tints and tones to heighten spatial illusion.  

 

Complexities abound: but oh such fun....such marvelous, wonderful, miraculous painting fun to be discovered!  

 

Finishing : Final heightening with a range of nuances; the expanded palette.

"TECHNIQUE MIXTE" PAINTING WORKSHOP teaches an approach to painting known as the "technique mixte", which has its antecedents with the early Northern Masters (Jan van Eyck).

This technique employs a tempera underpainting over which oil colours are glazed.

The technique enables the artist to achieve a profoundly intricate level of detail and greater luminosity of colour than oil paint alone can produce.
