Painting En Plein Air And In-Studio: 4 Steps To Successful Painting @ Lyme Academy of Fine Arts Tickets
Nov 21 all-day
Painting En Plein Air And In-Studio: 4 Steps To Successful Painting @ Lyme Academy of Fine Arts | Old Lyme | Connecticut | United States

Instructor: Zufar Bikbov
Thursday to Sunday, November 21st to November 23rd, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Ages 18+ | Lyme Academy Campus
Tuition: $450 | 3 total sessions | 21 total workshop hours

Description: “Great painting is when the right color, with the right value, is applied onto the right place”. Good to keep this in mind, but what steps does a student need to know in order to turn the struggle of work “en plein air” into an efficient tool for improving overall skills and quality of artwork? During this three-day workshop, Zufar Bikbov will go over all the nuances and details of the four-step painting process, which smoothly incorporates analysis, drawing, composition and particularly how to create larger-sized art in the studio using a Plein Air painting as a model. This approach has been the key to creating artworks that receive top awards on numerous regional and national level art competitions. During these 3 days, students will paint outdoors and in-studio. Going twice over the 4-steps of work. This workshop is fully hands-on, and the improvement of your skills will help you paint more often with better results.
