Dutch Still Life

Opening Reception

Friday, July 28, 6 pm - 8 pm

Agenda:
Dutch still life was always one of my greatest inspirations. This time we will try not just to copy but recreate a work of one of the masters. Think of the beautiful monochromatic breakfast still lives by Pieter Claesz or Willem Claesz Heda or brilliantly colored flowers by Rachel Ruysch, Van Aelst or Jan Van Huysum. The work of Willem Kalf has unmistakable luminosity to it. Balthasar Van der Ast stands out with his scattered shells and flowers arrangements. 
Let's get submerged into this wonderful world and select one artist or one of his pieces. It is very important to think in terms of the objects that are available to us: flowers, fruits, silverware, fabrics, etc., etc. We will also use all contemporary means  like cameras and computers. In other words we will do whatever it takes to achieve the "attributed to..." look.
This workshop will encourage compositional thinking and high technical execution.
 

It is a very exiting project and I hope you can join us!
As usual we will have a show of finished paintings at the gallery for the following month.
