    The Process

    Course Description

    Titian’s breathtaking works of art portray a complex construction of oil paint. However, his layers were applied sparingly and in surprisingly thin washes. His method of loose, colorful brushwork and the blurring of paint across the canvas created lively, nuanced effects that bring to life the emotion in any scene.

    This course is designed to teach any artist Titian’s Old Master technique and enable you to apply or adapt it for yourself. You will gain skill in both mark-making and transparent luminosity from this course.

    Instructor Bio

    The human figures in my paintings represent the emotional tension and psychological drama of life’s turning points. The blend of luminous color and buttery texture evoke the enigmatic environment where these moments of meditation originate. I have interwoven the sunflower – a symbol throughout my life embodying both sorrow and joy and collaged images from China’s Tang Dynasty – a signature of my heritage into my paintings.

    I am influenced recently by the way Auguste Rodin used clay to model figures, In his Sculpture contains expression and dramatic body language and through his marvelous clay marks making we could sense of inner emotions and feelings. So I have tried to treat my color paints as clay to build up the form on canvas.  The thickness of the paint evokes a sculptural physicality and multi-level quality.
