The classical indirect method makes it possible to paint realistic still life by separating all the different elements of creating into individual steps. 

Drawing and composition, capturing correct value, and layering color are broken down individually so the painting evolves in a logical and easy to understand sequence.

Students will practice glazing to create glowing, harmonious color in a still life. Learning about color, and the properties of different oil paints, whether transparent or opaque, also aids the artist in achieving realistic effects and a luminous depth that cannot be attained in direct painting. 

Sarah will share the modern materials and 21st century approach she uses to create paintings using the time- tested indirect method inspired by Flemish and Venetian techniques.
