Achieving Realism v2.0

This groundbreaking class will reveal the rules of the masters in producing convincing realism in your paintings.  In fact, you will learn that realism does not have to be painstakingly tedious to be successful.   While photorealism can at times depend on the most meticulous of details to communicate its idea, traditional realism separates itself by looking for that gray area in painting that says more with less.  This highly investigative yet inviting course will re-open the doors of the past, ignite the imagination and stoke the fine artist within.  Also, Steve Gibson will introduce traditional oil painting methods and how you can incorporate them into your airbrush work.   These methods, reapropriated for use with an airbrush have been developed off and on over the past decade-they are meant to reveal a more universal process of building an image regardless of subject matter.  The purpose of this instruction is to provide you with the tools necessary to develop your own vision while following a methodical approach that also allows for individual interpretation of both subject matter and its meaning.


This class is comprised of a culmination of intense practice, an ever insatiable thirst for artistic knowledge of traditional and academic painters from the past, and thru years of trial and error, an effort to find relevance and practical application methods for the airbrush using the what has been learned regardless of surface or substrate.
