Artist studies – John Singer Sargent

Artist study courses are designed to show you something of the working methods and approaches used by a great master of painting from the past, so that you know how to create similar effects to the great painters whilst gaining a deeper understanding of their art.

John Singer Sargent was a master of distilling a scene into its most basic elements. His colour use is often colourful and impressionist. His brushwork masterful.  In this five week course we will look at ways to emulate this look with daring in that colour use and scupting forms through directional brushwork.
