Nov. 9, 2012, 01:00 am
Lydia Martin, a professor of the New England School of Art & Design at Suffolk University, will lecture on method and materials of oil painting on a toned surface with subsequent layers of paint -first stage: applying initial structure lines. Second stage: then loading in the lights with tints of color along with colored transparencies of shadow. Finally the third stage: heightening the brightest lights as well as darkening the shadows-refining and defining form, atmosphere and structure.
