Immerse yourself in an exciting four-week artistic journey as we explore both gesture drawing and refined rendering of the human body. This 4-week workshop, led by Olya Losina, will take you through a step-by-step process, allowing you to develop your skills and create a stunning final artwork. You will delve into the world of quick-hand sketching, allowing you to develop a dexterity that is vital for capturing the essence of a subject in a short amount of time.
Using diluted black tempera and a diverse array of brushes (from fan brushes to toothbrushes), you will embark on a journey of rapid sketching, embracing the spontaneity and freedom it brings to your artistic expression. Through this project, you will discover the transformative power of intense sketching, sharpening your observation skills, and honing your ability to capture the essence of a subject with grace and effortlessness.
This marathon experience will revolutionize your approach to drawing, infusing your deliberate, slower drawing with newfound energy and confidence. You will witness how the dynamic and fluid strokes from your quick-hand sketches translate into graceful lines and precise details when working at a more deliberate pace.
Throughout the course, Olya Losina will provide expert guidance, offering valuable insights and personalized feedback to help you refine your technique and unlock your artistic potential. By the end of the course, you will have not only expanded your sketching repertoire but also gained a deeper understanding of the interplay between speed and precision in your artwork.
