Flemmish Oil Painting Demonstration
by Depy Adams
Tuesday, November 29, Depy Adams provided a demonstration at the PAGG gallery on still life painting done in the classic Flemish indirect oil painting technique. She discussed the setup and lighting of objects to make the composition and painted the panel as a finished monochromatic modeled painting. The complicated process was so integral to understand this former painting method. Thank You Depy!!!
