FREE LECTURE: Painting for Posterity
Friday September 18th 2015
6:30 am to 8:00 am
For information about registration for this program, please call the shop.
This lecture is all about constructing a painting from the support to the ground and final layers, including discussing how the “fat-over-lean” rule in oil painting is inherently flawed. Practical procedures are described to build your oil paintings according to the studies on the conservation of paintings. The presentation will be followed by questions and answers. This presentation is designed for painters of all mediums, but has special application to oil painting.
