Learn how to create a gothic themed still life with a contemporary twist in oils over three 4 hour sessions.
I will be teaching you my take on contemporary realist still life painting. You will be able to select from three tailor-made references that I will photograph and provide especially for this workshop, drawn from my collection of antiques, bones, taxidermy and gothic ephemera.
We will begin the course with an overview of my process for selecting and arranging objects - exploring the importance of themes and composition when designing still life paintings. You will then learn classical painting techniques that will breathe life into the subject - aiming for a 3D effect (Trompe-l'œil) and lifelike textures.
Note: This course was recorded during an online workshop that took place over three Sunday afternoons in August 2020.
