Art Academy Online Master Class: Introduction to Artemisia Gentileschi PART III: Blocking In

 

Very well done on your work so far. I am impressed. Here is the video as promised on blocking in. Lots of colour mixing and setting a solid foundation for the painting. Give a call if you get stuck on anything.

I meant to say that it is National Drawing Day on Saturday. I’ll will host a Facebook LIVE to celebrate where we will drawing the statue of Venus from the National Gallery. I’d love to see you then.

Good luck. Happy drawing,

Sheila x

Hi wonderful artists,

Well done on todays class. Above is a video for you as a reference. Below there is an image of the two groupings of light and shade blocked in as a reference.

We can draw parallels between Artemisia Gentileschi in her lifetime and the modern day recording artist Taylor Swift.

I have included  videos at the bottom of the post of her music video The Man and the making of. Both women have brilliance in common, success from a young age, fame and media attention both good and bad.

Both are arguably the best in their area of creative work, have created a huge body of work, constantly creating, are renowned for their beauty, relevant to the time they lived in and have had their personal lives scrutinised.

Both have constantly had to reinvent themselves and are both feminists. In the sense that they believe and are public and courageous in their feeling about all genders being very valuable.

Both have had to defy gender discrimination. Artemisia of course famously said “I will show you what a woman can do”.

See you next week and looking forward to it,

Sheila

Sketch of the under painting for our master piece, master copy: Saint Catherine of Alexandria by Italian Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi. The basic values are divided into two parts. The lighter values are in one group and the darker values in another. 

We can draw parallels between Artemisia Gentileschi in her lifetime and the modern day recording artist Taylor Swift.

Hi my wonderful artists, I hope you are safe and well. I am sad we can’t have an art camp in person. In lieu of our Art Academy I’ve put together this painting tutorial for you. As always, we will learn about a famous artist and then create our very own masterpiece inspired by their work. I hope you enjoy it.

Let me see your master copy Masterpiece paintings when they are complete. If you are new, you are also very welcome. Enjoy painting. If you are comfortable to show off your work ask a parent/guardian to post your painting to their social media, using the #icanpaintlikepicasso

 

I’ll post a selection up on www.artacademy.ie I am excited to see your work. Let me know in the comments/ get in touch if there is another painting you would like me to cover for you. For those artists aged 10-110 years old, hold tight, I am making a video for you too. Many art shops are closed right now but get in touch if you need help sourcing paints etc

 

For my Dublin, Ireland based artists K&M Evans will drop to your door. Also I’ve been advised that Terenure Office have canvases and painting supplies (Thank you Emer for the tip) and will deliver. Happy painting Sheila x

Art Academy Online Master Class: Introduction to Artemisia Gentileschi PART I: Design

Hi lovely artists,

Well done on all your work today. I’ve filmed filling in the rest of the gridded drawing above as promised. You may use it as a reference when you are drawing the rest of your scaled up drawing on your canvas.

If you have any questions get in touch. See you next week for part 2: the underpainting. For this you will need: paint brushes, small for painting lines and bigger for filling in bigger areas, scissors, jar of water, your burnt umber acrylic paint, some kitchen paper, your completed design in the grid on the canvas and an artists palette (even a paper plate will work) Also cover the table and wear “art clothes”. If your art supplies are late being delivered let me know and I will see what I can do for you.

Happy creating,

Sheila
