Painting-Drawing 17-Master Course 2017 (Student1)

On Monday lesson I finished my painting adding strokes to the detailing by making the strokes look neat and evident. From this learning I have identified how important the use of brush size, stroke length, direction detail for each stage of painting.



Tuesday I made a visit to Verona and I was supposed to cover some interesting places which more attractive on the city of Verona, Juliet house. This house belongs to the Dal Capello family. The house is today an attractive brick and stone building with ivy courtyard. The entrance to the courtyard testifies to the enduring power of legend and the search for romance that we all carry in our hearts. It covered with love letters from romantic souls searching for everlasting love.




Piazza delle erbe is an Market Square, occupies a good part of the area of Verona’s Roman court, the square is surrounded by important building like Mazzanti house with wonderful frescos on the walls and in the center of this public space there is an important monument of Verona, a fountain built using a Roman statue during the Scaligeri period named ‘’Madonna Verona’’.

On Tuesday lesson after selecting the design for the 3rd wall painting I have trace my drawing in to the wall. I had fellow a few steps which was not easy at the same time so much time consuming. First of all I traced the design in to tracing paper, next I took pin and made whole with lines which I had made according to the design. Then I kept this tracing paper in to the wall and used charcoal and rub it throughout the whole that I made. And finally with the pencil I re-create which is missed parts of the drawing.

My friend David he used different technique for this tracing process. He used carbon paper and according to him that is very easy and fast method

Hiromi has started her wall painting object drawing and she uses egg tempera for her painting.
