Baroque Master Painting Workshop with Brian Smyth, Dublin 7

In this intensive 3-day workshop led by Brian Smyth – artist and tutor at the Angel Academy of Art, Florence, Italy – students will be introduced to the techniques and practices of classical atelier painting, focusing specifically on the reproduction of an oil painting by one of the Baroque masters: Caravaggio, Velázquez and De Ribera.

Students will work from a choice of several high-quality reproductions supplied by the academy. The various stages of a painting, from the drawing stage to the final rendering of the forms, will be discussed and demonstrated in detail. Further topics include: colour, paint quality, edge treatment, the relation of light to form, and much more.
