Natural Pigment’s Painting Best Practicesby Matthew Innis |
Natural Pigments, a specialty artists materials company, spent years developing this technical workshop to teach skills that are not usually taught in art school and universities; a thorough understanding of artist’s materials and tools, what they are designed to do, when to choose them and how to provide considerable longevity to one’s finished work. This information-packed workshop includes all aspects of constructing a painting from the support and ground to the final layers. The practical procedures to build an oil painting based on conservation research during the past century are clearly explained and demonstrated. This workshop is designated for painters of all mediums including acrylic, watercolor, casein tempera, egg tempera and encaustic with special emphasis given to oil painting.
