Still Life with Hongnian Zhang
July 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Friday, repeating until July 17, 2020
Using still life as the subject, this demonstration will teach the oil painting process in a systematic way, with an emphasis on creating three-dimensional form. Hongnian Zhang will paint a simple arrangement of a few objects, with background drapery selected to enhance them.
Starting with a small value sketch and color study, Hongnian will show how to mark out the arrangement’s “envelope”, each object’s proportion, perspective and shadow/light lines, and how to cover the canvas working from dark to light. Then he will demonstrate how to create a strong sense of form, with “Up, Down, Left, Right”.
This 60 minute demonstration will be packed with useful information that you can apply immediately to your own painting. Hope you can join us!
