Born in Pennsylvania in 1833, William Trost Richards was a wonderful landscape and seascape painter. For this series, we will look in-depth at his techniques, breaking apart the visual application of color with the mechanical application. Richards exhibited paintings from two different schools of thought, Hudson River School and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. We will explain both schools and how the applications of color and visual theory were different.
Richards original paintings were done in oils and were 68 inches wide. David will show you how to reproduce these paintings in 1/3 scale, about 34 inches wide and also how to approach the painting using a more limited palette of acrylics. We will use the Heritage Global Colors to capture some of the techniques he used while also using the fast drying properties of the acrylics to speed up the painting and thin layering process of the Hudson Rive School and Pre-Raphaelite techniques.
Our goal with these studies is to teach you the main concepts behind the work. Then, David will show you how to alter the techniques slightly to paint them with limited acrylics palettes and faster techniques. We want to capture the visual feeling of the painting while also incorporating the look, feel and speed of painting today's more modern techniques.
With this series David will once again show you how to apporach a painting like this for the first time!! This is great for first time study! You will see his actual recreation of the painting and his thoughts as he develops the looks needed to capture the feeling of Richards outstanding work. A unique approach to teaching and filming.
