Rees Economy of Brushstrokes (Nov.)Supply Lis1

In the tradition of masters like Sargent and Zorn, students will be presented with the idea of conservation of brushstrokes. Simplification in a painting is key, and this class challenges students to embrace this philosophy by executing a painting in minimal brushstrokes. The first session will include a slideshow, lecture, and demonstration. The second session will have students painting a still life with 50 brushstrokes, and the third session will have students painting a portrait in 50 brush strokes using a reference by John Singer Sargent. By the end of the class, students will be able to create powerful, bold paintings, successfully combining realism with looseness.
