Where Nature Meets The Divine

From J. Kirk Richards…

It’s been said that the physical and spiritual, when combined, create the soul. In this class we combine the spiritual–in the form of imaginative design, with the physical–in the form of studying nature. Join renowned painter of saints and angels J. Kirk Richards as he takes a composition from beginning to end, showing and explaining the steps in between.

We will begin with a focus on principles of design: specifically shape, eye paths, and gesture. We’ll practice filling the rectangular composition with interesting shapes that relate to each other. We’ll look at Rembrandt and Degas as examples of composing with eye paths. We’ll talk about the gestures of the figure and how they lead the eye.

We’ll practice color harmonies by creating color studies in differing color schemes. We’ll use a grid to enlarge our design. We’ll use gold leaf to add dimension to our painting.

We’ll practice fundamentals of painting a portrait, using both a live model and photographs, and focusing on accuracy of shape, temperature shifts, values, and paint application. We’ll use glazes and layers to push and pull the picture plane until we have a finished work of art.

I look forward to making art with you where nature meets the divine.
