Two Satyrs | Oils Master Copy,
- This is from my prior semester as a junior, In my Life Painting Class (@RMCAD).
Between painting live nude models, and models in costume, we were assigned to paint a famous Baroque painters piece through out the semester. This was to help us learn and think like the masters.
I love to paint fantasy, and I love the Baroque style. This was the project for me, I chose something that I would learn from and fit my portfolio. I am fond of Ruben and all of his work. I went on a hunt and found this lovely piece by Ruben, Two Satyrs c.e. 1618-19.
My process for oil painting sketches:
The Drawing is the most important feature, which has
influenced many of my paintings after this particular
exercise with the master's painting of Ruben's.
To start, I sketch the drawing on paper, lay over tracing paper, tighten the drawing
and then take it into photo shop to address cleaner lines, before I make the final
transfer on to the canvas.
(Some drawings even re drawn are more expressive than others.)

After the under-painting is applied with Umber and White Gesso,
I then move into the traditional Dead Palette.
First addressing the darks, big shapes and moving from there.
