Day 5 on this painting and I'm nearing completion! I'll work on it for one or two more sessions then I'll sign it and let it dry.
Also, tomorrow is my first class at the Ridgewood Art Institute! I'm really excited to start teaching oil painting full time for young people. I'm also very honored to be teaching at the school where I first started oil painting. Anyone interested in more information about my class can find it HERE.
Just put the finishing touches on my portrait and signed it! I'll be varnishing it after it dries fully and then photographing it. I said previously that I photograph my work before I varnish it, but I've switched methods so now I photograph it after I varnish it.
On another note, my classes at the Ridgewood Art Institute start in 8 days and I'm very excited. I'm also proud to announce that I'm going to be a TA for a class in NYC at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. The ICAA class is titled, "Observational Drawing Skills For Architects & Designers and will be taught by John Woodrow Kelley.
*See the picture below for more details about the ICAA class.
I have some more information on my new class at the Ridgewood Art Institute! The class will begin Wednesday, September 6th at 3:30pm in the West Studio of the Ridgewood Art Institute, located at 12 East Glen Avenue, Ridgewood, NJ 07450.
The class itself is an oil painting class for young people, which will focus on portraiture, pet portraits, animal drawing and the human figure. The class is designed for both beginners and advanced students and will cover every aspect of academic oil painting.
I'm very proud to teach this course and am also planning a workshop at some point during the year. If anyone is interested in more information, please don't hesitate to contact me at email@example.com!
