Theatrical Realism vs Photorealism
The topic of the workshop will be a yellow themed still life of lemons. Jonathan will guide the class step by step by demonstrating his process through each stage on a 40×40cm painting which he has already begun. The painting will depict four lemons, which will clearly illustrate each lemon at a different stage of painting. The day will be spent following Jonathan’s expert guidance at each step including what makes a good photograph and how to work from one; sketching the photograph onto the medium; colour mixing; demonstration of painting over the first layer; final details and glazing and varnishing do’s and dont’s.
