Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Nationality: Sri Lankan
Course: Painting and Drawing
Program: Master Coures
Period: Sep. 4, 2017 – Apr. 28, 2018
Since her childhood it is one for her dreams to be pursuing her masters in art and design. She applied to the international art and design competition 2017 and obtained second place in category of professional in art painting and drawing section.
On Monday lesson I start my experimental study on egg tempera technique, I select my inspiration as Madonna del Magnificat which belongs to Sandro Botticelli in Renaissance period. Once I finish the sketching of the painting I use semi- transparent paper to trace the drawing. I place it over the drawing and focus to get the all the lines from the drawing in to tracing paper.
Then I use Terra D’ Ombra to transfer my sketch in to wooden plate which I have already prepared with the Gesso. I apply powder of Terra D’ Ombra with the help of paint brush and carefully rub with the small pressure. Then peel off the tapes and take tracing paper away.
As according to the egg tempera technique I use earth green to define values of my painting. Establishing correct value and color more import so I use support of the original painting to identify the right path. Slowly slowly brush out smoothly tonal value of the painting and define the contours of the face, hand and clothing.
