Alla Prima Painting from Life and Photos
In this class David will instruct students in painting alla prima (wet into wet) and exploring different subjects, including the figure and portrait. Students will work from a model on the first day and then use photos of other subjects, such as people, children, and landscape. David will discuss techniques for simplifying the subject and learning to paint with directness and economy. In addition, he will also talk about the basics of form, value, color and how we use our painting knowledge to interpret, rather than copy, photos so that they can become successful paintings.
PLEASE NOTE THE DEADLINE TO SIGN UP FOR THIS WORKSHOP IS JANUARY 10, 2020!
About David Shevlino:
Shevlino studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (certificate ’84) and the University of Pennsylvania (BFA ’92). His work has been featured in national publications and he has exhibited his work and taught workshops throughout the U.S and Europe. He has also produced a series of videos and DVDs about his artwork and painting methods.
“My exposure to art began as a teenager growing up in NJ near NYC. I began making trips to art museums in NYC when I was 15 and developed a love of traditional figurative painting. As a youth I found myself especially drawn to the old masters. Those early trips to the museum instilled in me a love of craft and a sense of where painting comes from. For most of my artistic career I’ve tried to take what I’ve learned about traditional painting and mold it into something I can call my own, which presently means exploring the place between traditional figurative painting and abstraction.”
