Using Baroque pigments and painting methods, paint along with Sadie as she creates a copy of 17th century Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens’ portrait sketch of his wife, Isabella Brant.
PREVIEW (scroll down to open course lessons)
The goal of this course is to emulate Rubens’ loose, expressive process, using just a few paint colors, to expand our ability to create quick and lively oil portraits.
Sadie starts this copy by sketching broadly with the paintbrush on a streaky toned ground. The flesh tones are then modeled with painterly strokes, and the clothing, jewelry and hair are expressively dashed in using a single-pigment paint application.
