The Painted Sketch

Root Studio

Exploring the Quick-Study Painted Sketch Artist and MICA art instructor Duane Lutsko will host a series of workshops that investigate the quick study as a fundamental tool in developing a larger body of work. The one-off is a quickly painted sketch usually done on location and in one sitting. It combines the personal mark of the draughts-person with that of the painter and creates a type of signature or style. Eventbrite Ticketing: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-painted-sketch-with-duane-lutsko-tickets-54449080666 Enhance your painting by these benefits: · embed the spontaneity of drawing into a rendered painting · sustain the thesis of your original inspiration · develop ideas and themes that carryover into more evolved paintings · explore grisaille, verradiccio, alla prima, impasto, and palette knife techniques. Come practice the habits that develop your creative potential as a visual artist. Previous experience painting is beneficial but not necessary.
