Participants in Liberace’s Workshop will be executing the modern method of alla prima and a rich array of contemporary colors. Students will follow a step-by-step method which will allow them to compose a figure painting with the look and finish of classic Renaissance paintings. Though alla prima (the direct manner of finishing a painting while it is wet) is often considered an impressionistic approach, it is also ideal for the careful and thorough modeling which is a hallmark of classical painting. This approach will allow students to thoroughly and efficiently complete a painting without the laborious and time consuming classic approach of glazed layers. Methods of drawing, paint manipulation and color arrangement will be included and a general analysis of the anatomy will be stressed.

To address the challenges of painting color, Steven Assael explores with his students the properties and effects of light, as well as ways in which past artists have approached these all-important topics.
