This class offers the opportunity for hands-on learning in dealing with a costumed figure. Emphasis will be placed on the visible form, gesture, underlying structure, differing characteristics of fabric, and selecting from nature to create a visually pleasing picture. Using the sight-size method, students will develop a minimum of 3 costumed figure studies. This 15-week class will be broken into 3 five-week poses. Each pose will feature different costuming.

Depending on skill level, students are welcome to work in pencil, charcoal, or oil paint. Watercolor or pastels are also welcome. During the 15 weeks, students are welcome to do a sustained pose study for the full 5 weeks, or multiple studies from different views as spots are available.

page from artist sketchbook by christine mitzuk with notes from stephan orsak
Here's a page from my sketchbook during the workshop. Stephan made some notes in different colored inks (one of the tools he uses in his own journals) to show iterations.

Keeping an artist journal or sketchbook can be tricky sometimes. Or maybe it feels like a difficult, lengthy chore. Stephan Orsak shared some insights into the artist journal and making it a fun part of the creative process in a recent workshop.

I'm not a consistent scribbler. I'd like to incorporate it into my process and I realized I had some obstacles in my way. Stephan Orsak offered a workshop in January titled "The Artist’s Journal: The Quiet Link Between Idea and Masterpiece" through The Atelier so I gave it a shot. It was worth the time and money and I hope he runs it again so more people can take it.

Some of the things he showed us were examples of sketchbooks from the likes of John Singer Sargent, Pablo Picasso, and Constable

Sargent doodles (you can browse the Harvard Art Museums collection, search for Sargent Sketchbook):

http://www.harvardartmuseums.org/collections/object/198416?position=24

Pablo Picasso:
I can't seem to link to a specific image so go here and search for sketchbook, sketch, or journal  http://colleccio.museupicasso.bcn.cat/eMuseumPlus

John Constable:
http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/a/constable_sketchbook/
Stephan pointed out this one for how Constable treated the people; they're just dots.

Some Takeaways from the Workshop

I have a lot of unwritten rules that I've accumulated about what an artist journal ought to be. A lot of them are getting in my way and can be trashed. Now I need to figure out how to trash them or overwrite them.

Artist sketchbooks don't need to have "finished", "beautiful", "perfect" works. They can be messy. They can be clean. They can be more of an incubator for ideas, a workshop to experiment, a place to put quick observations or little bits of ideas. (I like the idea of it being an incubator and a place to note random thoughts or observations).

Artist sketchbooks can be anything and contain anything that is useful or of importance to each individual artist.

It is O.K. to play, explore, ask "what if?", or "if this then what?". Trying out different options. Instead of drawing what is, maybe ask "what could it be?"

A drawing doesn't have to be OF something, it could be an experiment with mark making, just scribbles.

Stephan suggested asking (and I'm paraphrasing) "what's important to you about the thing you're seeing? What about it makes an impression on you?" and then "does it seem like a line would translate the idea or tone or a combination of the two".

Putting something down on the paper doesn't need to take an hour. It can take 5 minutes or less.

An artist sketchbook doesn't have to be shared.

Thank you Stephan. I hope you do the workshop in the future so more folks can benefit from your findings and explorations.

Take time for yourself. Take an art class.

I will be teaching 3 classes at The Atelier: Gestural Figure Study, Illustration, and Portrait.  The Atelier Studio Program of Fine Art is a friendly little traditional art school located in Northeast Minneapolis, MN (a bit on the outskirts of Dinky Town).

Fun with Gouache

I've been playing around with Gouache when I can. I think it will be a great help for doing color studies in preparation for an oil painting. Plus I really like the look of it in other people's work. Here are a few small paintings I made using gouache. Both are available for sale from my Square Market online store.

About my palette

As I mentioned earlier, I think gouache could be a good tool for me to do color studies with in preparation for oil paintings. I tried to match my gouache colors to the Paxton Palette that we use for oil painting at The Atelier. I also mostly use the Paxton Palette in my own oil paintings. My choice of brands were made mainly on what the gouache colors look like compared to the oil paint colors I use, the lightfast rating of the gouache, and what was easily available to me at the time. I've listed the color, brand name, and color index number.

Plus I couldn't find a few of the colors in gouache that I use in oils (Light Red and Indian Red). Here's where knowing the color index number comes in handy. PR101 is used in Light Red and Indian Red so I just looked for that on the gouache labels and then looked at how the color compared to the oil colors. As of June 2015, this is what my larger gouache palette is set up with:

  • Ivory Black (Holbein Artist's Gouache, PBk6)
  • Raw Umber (Holbein Artist's Gouache, PBr7)
  • Permanent Alizarin Crimson (Winsor & Newton Designers Gouache, PR176)
  • Red Ochre (Winsor & Newton Designers Gouache, PR101, PV19) - replaces Indian Red because I couldn't find it in gouache
  • Burnt Sienna (Holbein Artist's Gouache, PBr7, PR101) - replaces Light Red because I couldn't find it in gouache
  • Vermillion Tone (Schmincke Hodram Gouache, PR255) - replaces Cadmium Red Light
  • Brilliant Yellow (Winsor & Newton, pigment not on lable) - replaces Cadmium Yellow Light
  • Naples Yellow (Winsor & Newton, PW6, PBr24)
  • Yellow Ochre (Holbein Artist's Gouache, PY42, 43)
  • Viridian Green (Holbein Artist's Gouache, PG18)
  • Ultramarine Deep (Holbein Artist's Gouache, PB29) - I have M. Graham Ultramarine Blue Gouache but it seems too bright to me compared to my oil paint.

Additional non- Paxton Palette colors

  • Quinacridone Rose (M. Graham, PV19)
  • Quinacridone Violet (M. Graham, PV19)
  • Titanium White (M. Graham, PW6)
  • Carmine (Schmincke, PV19)
  • Burnt Sienna (Schmincke, PBr7, PR101, PBr33)
  • Hansa Yellow (M. Graham, PY3)
  • Gamboge (M. Graham, PY151, PO62)
  • Sap Green (M. Graham, PG7, PY101)
  • Cerulean Blue (M. Graham, PB36)
  • Indigo (Schmincke, PB60)
gouache paxton palette with additional colors
I have an 8 color gouache palette and this larger one. Please note that the color in the photo is pretty close but not exact. The Schmincke Burnt Sienna is a bit muddy currently from my mixing it with Indigo, and the Red Ochre is showing a bit more violet than it actually is. I just figured it would be more helpful than not to see the palette.

I've squeezed a little of each out in a watercolor palette. They aren't as easy to re-wet as the M. Graham gouache but I think it works fine for me. One or two of the dry paint blobs did detach and go wandering around the palette. Unfortunately I don't remember which colors or brand did it, but it wasn't a big deal. I just put the paint back in its spot, wet it enough to create a paint puddle, and it dried in place.

I'm sure this palette will change over time. Right now it allows me to use Paxton Palette colors, or go for the warm and cool color combinations (Alizarin and Vermillion, Gamboge and Brilliant Yellow or Hansa, Cerulean and Ultramarine, Sap Green and Viridian). Does anybody have a color recommendation they think I might like to try?

Spring Art Event

Stop on by! I'll be hawking my wares during *Art-A-Whirl. Many of my fantasy pieces will be displayed, as well as some portraits, and still life. I'll have originals, prints, note cards, and studies for sale.
