This second film with Robert Wade concentrates on simplification. Bob emphasises that one should choose a simple subject and paint it in a simple, straightforward manner. Painting in and around the town of Leuven in Belgium he selects four different subjects that includes a lake with reflected trees and building, an old mill, a group of houses seen from a distance and a very fine old university building. In addition, he shows us the fun to be had from changing the mood of a scene by altering the colours.
Filmed during a recent workshop he conducted at Liliedahl Fine Art Studio, Robert Johnson gives a tour de force performance of his elegant, classic painting style. Taken to completion, the painting demonstration provides the student of oil painting with a complete understanding of how a painting is conceived, blocked-in, and painted from beginning to end. If you are a painter aspiring to paint roses (or any still-life subject), this video is a must see!
Unlike other videos in the "In the Studio With…." series, this program was not filmed in Robert Johnson personal studio, due to logistical limitations by so much video equipment. Instead, it was filmed entirely in Liliedahl Fine Art Studio, which enabled us to give the artist and the production crew sufficient area to work and provide the viewer with the best view possible. This in-depth program is the latest in our series of living master artists entltled "In the Studio With……Robert A. Johnson". Filmed over five days, it has been edited to include all the verbal content and exceptional painting process of this modern master. Edited by Johnnie Liliedahl, a professional working artist, you are assured that everything you want to see from an artist's viewpoint is included in this program.
The classic technique of three chalk or “trois crayon” is one of the most elegant and efficient methods of rendering the portrait. It involves the manipulation of red, black and white to suggest the warmth and richness of flesh hues. It is not only a visually compelling technique, but also a means to connect with some of the great artists who used this approach, such as Rubens, Watteau, and Holbein. In this DVD, you will learn from one of America’s foremost artists and teachers, known for his inspiring and informative teaching style, as he takes you through the entire process of creating an original drawing while explaining everything from the selection of materials to his techiniques to final touches. Special features include paper preparation, art gallery, and video previews from the five demos in this series.
The Power of Positive Painting™ instructional video (now on DVD) has been a real success story. Robert has received plenty of feedback over the years since he first published the Power of Positive Painting™ back in 1995, all of which he has taken to heart. Overwhelmingly, viewers appreciated his practical, concrete, informative and energetic approach to portraiture.
