So happy to be going back to classes on Saturdays at Melbourne Art School – this time with Hilmi Baskurt taking us through.
Once again it’s Back to the Drawing Board for me.
Hilmi took us through a very structured study which was a good ‘head clearer’ – sometimes it’s a good thing not to be left too much to your own devices!
No matter how far I think I’m progressing – I always come back to the study and baulk at the first strokes. But Hilmi’s take on keeping early lines simple was just that – to make clear lines to mark out the planes of the forms and the relationships between them. I found that a great way to get going.
This link to an image of Hilmi’s work on the Melbourne Art Class site from an earlier term – Hilmi says he is drawn to the human condition which is clearly revealed in the image below.
Incredible artist Hilmi Baskurt starts his latest intensive course on May 16th! Held over 4 Saturdays, "Painting from the Figure" will have a life model and tuition will focus on observation and accuracy in representing the human form. It is a MUST course for those artists wanting to improve their painting skills. Check out our website (link in bio) and Hilmi's course under PAINTING for more details and enrolment. #melbourneaetclass #painting #melbournesart #hilmibaskurt #lifedrawing #melbournepainting
This site by Connie is a nice summary of alla prima – best of all when she describes that even John Singer Sergeant scraped back and started again – phew…
