Silverpoint and Ink: The Figure and Portrait

SILVERPOINT AND INK: THE FIGURE AND PORTRAIT
Of all the drawing techniques available to artists, silverpoint and ink are perhaps the most graceful and elegant. These illustrious techniques were the first to be studied by the great masters such as Da Vinci and Durer and their works demonstrate the unparalleled power and nobility of the media. In this video Rob will explore this ancient craft by using specially prepared paper, silver stylus tools and various ink types to show off the graphic beauty of silverpoint and ink with distinctive methods of modeling such as hatching, crosshatching and linear glazing. Total running time, 2 hours, 54 minutes. View excerpt by clicking on link above.

The Watercolor Portrait

THE WATERCOLOR PORTRAIT
The complex characteristics of watercolor and ink enable a wide variety of approaches, from quick thumbnail sketches to highly rendered modeling. Artists such as Rembrandt and Goya transformed the ink sketch into a powerful art form by exploiting its ability to simultaneously capture the finest line along with broad melting masses of tone. Durer, Sorolla, and Sargent showed that watercolor can deliver refined results as well as capture the fleeting effects of light and atmosphere. This video focuses on the portrait painted with watercolor in full color and in monochrome. From broad abstract masses to precise anatomical detail, Rob executes two demos that explore the full range of effects watercolor offers. All the materials are described along with step-by-step approaches that provide roadmaps to finished watercolor portraits. See link to model poses at top of the page. Also to see video excerpts, click on the video link above. Total running time, 2 hours, 12 minutes.

Grisaille “The Painted Sketch”

GRISAILLE “THE PAINTED SKETCH”
Follow along as Rob creates a figure drawing with oils on paper using a monochrome palette of primarily brown and white. Also known as “grisaille,” this method allows artists to focus on value relationships without the addition of color. Though commonly used as an underpainting for color, Rob uses the technique to create a finished work of art as he details materials, paint application, and finishing. All aspects of the work including materials, selecting a pose, basic organization, and finishing are described and demonstrated. Video excerpts can be found by clicking on link above.

Anatomy: The Torso

ANATOMY: THE TORSO
Anatomical knowledge has inspired and guided artists for centuries. From DaVinci’s sublime studies to Michelangelo’s muscular creations, the study of anatomy led to extraordinary achievements in the history of art. In this video, Robert Liberace explores this tradition by examining the fundamental anatomical forms which shape the lights and shadows of the body’s surface. Working from a live model, each significant form-creating muscle of the torso is described and rendered from origin to insertion with a modified three-color chalk technique which highlights the muscle character, direction, and the bony connections. The video also includes a chapter gallery which includes detailed reference diagrams drawn by Rob. Each diagram, based on the pose of the original drawing, features highlighted origins, insertions and actions of each individual muscle along with diagrams of the muscles themselves. Photos of the model can be downloaded online (see back of DVD case or above). Video excerpts can be seen on “The Quick Draw Video Excerpt” link above. Running time 2 hours, 48 minutes.

The Portrait in Three Color Chalk

THE PORTRAIT IN THREE COLOR CHALK
(DVD SOLD OUT – ONLY AVAILABLE AS A DOWNLOAD AT THE MOMENT)
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 techniques to final touches. Special features include paper preparation, art gallery, and video previews from the five demos in this series. Photos of the model can be found from the link above. Also, excerpts are on the “The Quick Draw” video excerpts link above (scroll to right).  Total running time, 2 hours, 20 minutes.
