IMG 0169 copy

August 5 & 12, 2021
6:30-9:30 pm Eastern Time

If you venture outside the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, you discover a walkway filled with marble statues of Renaissance masters including Michelangelo, da Vinci, and Ravello. Bring a bit of Italy to your artwork as you learn to capture the likeness of a sunlit sculpture in watercolors. In the first class, paint the likeness of the master sculptor Michelangelo and explore how dramatic sunlight and layered shadows can give a watercolor painting a sense of dimension. In the second, paint Leonardo da Vinci’s statue along with the instructor, or work from your own photo of a sculpture. This new way of seeing can be your stepping-stone to the world of watercolor portraiture.
