Paint like Renaissance Masters with Victoria Wallace

June 21 @ 10:00 - 16:00


Technical Theme: 21 st Century Grisaille

How would you like to have an authentic masterpiece, like a Monet, a van Gogh, a Frida Kahlo, a Caravaggio, or a Klimt painting in your home? In this new series of 3 workshops, artist, Victoria Wallace, will show you how to create your very own masterpiece inspired by some of the world’s most renowned artists.

21 st Century Grisaille (pronounced like Versailles) is artist, Victoria Wallace’s, modern take on an old masters oil painting technique using only tones of gray to establish a composition, after which coloured transparent oil glazes were added to finish the work.  Renaissance artists such as Mantegna and Caravaggio often used grisaille as a classicising effect, either in imitation of the effect of a classical sculptured relief or of Roman painting.

In this workshop, Victoria will show you how to create a modern Grisaille effect using dry media and acrylic polymer medium, after the master’s technique but in a much less time-consuming fashion.

Steps include:
– Drawing out designs with dry media onto canvas
– The creation of grisailles with the addition of acrylic medium
– Painting designs with pigmented acrylic transparencies/ glazes/washes to completion

The finest artist quality acrylic paints will be provided in this series of workshops.
