My brushwork is quite unsystematic. I slam the paint on in all sorts of wats and leave each result to take care of itself.Vincent Van Gogh
This two-part course attempts to cover the intangible qualities of good brushwork. This series includes a short Q&A from students developing their own brushwork alongside me with online tuition. We attempt to simplify the process, expand on the basics, and develop a rounded understanding of the subject.
This course covers:
- The pressure of the brush stroke.
- Layering best practices.
- Glazing best practices.
- Applying a basecoat.
- Developing volumes and values.
