Titian (1488 – 1576) said that a painting requires at least 40 layers. In this demonstration, Steve will show you how to achieve the affect that painters from the Renaissance to the Dutch Golden age were striving for in the most efficient way possible (far less than 40 layers). This demonstration will summarize a few hundred years of oil painting knowledge in about 90 minutes. The importance of drawing, panel preparation, under painting, dead layer, opaque and transparent pigments, mediums and most importantly, brushwork, will be discussed.
Steven Chmilar grew up in northern Alberta, where he spent his childhood drawing and inventing imaginary civilizations in the woods. From 2000 until 2011, he performed as a professional musician and won a national songwriting contest at CMW in Toronto in 2006. In 2012, he won Best in Show at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibit (Canada’s largest juried art fair). He has continued to paint full-time since the success of his debut group exhibit at the AGGV in 2011. www.stevechmilar.com/media
