WHY PAINT A LION?

WHY PAINT A LION?

ONLINE! | 10AM-1PM Mountain Standard Time (Arizona)| on ZOOM and Facebook! | 3 Mondays Over three online sessions of three hours at a time, Guy Combes will not only demonstrate how he produces a simple oil painting, but also outline what his motivations are to choose wildlife as his subject, and explore ways that you can elevate your wildlife paintings to have more meaning, while remaining within the boundaries of realism. The first session will focus on subject and composition, and while reference will be provided for the exercise of rendering, students are encouraged to submit any images that have special significance to them, that they would like to translate into a painting. At the end of the session, there will be an assessment of these materials and suggestions of how to move forward with them. The second session will be a demonstration of technique in both real time and time-lapse video showing palette mixing, paint application, glazing and finishing. In the third session, students are encouraged to show their work, either previously painted or produced as part of the class, and considerate critique will be given.
