Painting Portraits in Watermedia with Roger Dellar RI PS ROI
Roger Dellar RI PS ROI will deliver a live demonstration over Zoom on the subject, taking viewers through the process of finding the likeness in watermedia.
Roger Dellar's enjoyment of painting is the process rather than the end result. It is about finding the subject and letting it emerge. He enjoys the surface created, the brushwork and the differences between lean and fat paint. He wants the painting to read from a distance as reality, but close up to be a series of marks. With composition, he likes this to emerge by looking for the spatial qualities of one shape creating an imbalance, and then being resolved by another. He likes to work with a limited palette adding a few brights for emphasis.
