Workshop - Masters Series portrait of a woman

Second in our Master Copy workshop series is Adolphe-William Bouguereau, Over 5 days we will paint his painting - sketch of a young woman(shown above).

Bouguereau was a French painter who studied at the Ecole des-Beaux-arts in Paris and worked in a classical academic style. A high importance was placed on drawing, accurate depiction of the subject, a realist practice rather than an impressionist practice, resulting in a porcelain, ethereal quality. Peter will take you through the steps building up Luminous thin layers over a black and white underpainting. There is much to be learned!!
