Studio Workshop With David Dunlop
Workshop 1, Painting SkiesDVD - 2012
In program 1, David examines, discusses and outlines the design of van Ruisdael's masterful painting The Wheatfield. He discusses the different considerations for designing higher and lower perspectives for landscapes and then paints a demonstration exploring how van Ruisdael painted his voluminous skies. In program 2, David examines, discusses and paints a study of Turner's beautiful View of Venice: The Ducal Palace, Dogana and Part of San Giorgio, painted in 1841. He examines the techniques that Turner used to paint luminous skies and water in the Venetian landscape. Program 3 includes a discussion on the structure and design of painting and he demonstrates many painting techniques for shaping, toning and creating texture. In program 4, David demonstrates how to paint a luminous sky against a subtle background. He paints the very subtle gradations of color in a glowing backlit (contre-jour) sky and discusses the delicate touches and palette necessary to create this landscape.
