Masterwork Painting Repertoire
The Masterwork series is organised into four streams.
- Van Gogh - Language of Line
- Cezanne - Essential Shapes of Everything
- Monet - Language of Nature
- Aussie Landscapes - Use the techniques of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Monet to paint Australian landscapes.
1: Van Gogh
The Language of Line
Van Gogh's 'Sunflowers' version 3 . I advise you to paint Sunflowers version 1 first.
The Essential Shapes of Everything
Cezanne said "... with an apple I will astonish Paris".
And he did. But it's difficult for the modern eye to see why, because his innovations became intrinsic to the language of western art in the 20th century.
In these paintings we will explore Cezanne's compelling and powerful style.
The Language of Nature
Monet's body of work covers all subjects from portraiture, to landscapes, seascapes, gardens and still life. By recreating his paintings from the inside out we develop a powerful tool kit for all our painting activities.
4: Aussie Landscapes
Use the techniques of Van Gogh, Cezanne and Monet to paint scenes from Sydney and around Australia.
Sunset in the park - Features: Simplify a photo to create a more dramatic painting.
Pentecost River Crossing, the Kimberleys - Apply the techniques of Monet to painting the Australian Outback.
Peaceful Stream, The Everglades, Leura - Learn how to make a beautiful painting from a rather plain photograph of a scene.
Monet paintings by students. Notice that they are all different, yet all recognisably the same scene - the Japanese Bridge, and both are in the style of Monet.
Another happy class with their finished paintings, completed in just one session at Inglis Academy's "Paint a Masterwork".
