We invite you to painting courses at Rites Folk School from this year. August 3 to 5. The course will be led by the painter Elga Grínvalde.
Working process in two steps:
- First step:
To be in nature, observe, sketching, note, to indulge in the first impression and impulse of vision, sketch it all and sketch it (A4 drawing paper album), record on paper nature baseline and area ratios, landscape rhythms.
Barn, garden-greenhouse, water-reflection
Apple shade-chair, summer night-twilight
The atmosphere of the air and many more objects from the life of the Rites parish have been viewed and fixed in sketches and drawings.
- Second step:
Compile, analyze and learn from many sketches to create a single landscape composition based on previously worked sketches, to work out one original painting.
Materials for painting canvas or cardboard size 40×30 or 40×50, some can be smaller for the color sketches. Acrylic or oil paints, brushes.
A4 drawing pad for sketching.
