A RENAISSANCE PAINTING TECHNIQUE FOR
ATELIER NEO-MEDICI invites students and professional painters to the Aquitaine region of France, for a three month intensive painting workshop.
Professor Gregory Pelizzari teaches an approach to painting known as the "technique mixte",which has its antecedents with the early Northern masters (Jan van Eyck). This technique employs a tempera underpainting over which oil colours are glazed,enabling the artist to achieve a profoundly intricate level of detail and greater luminosity of colour than oil paint alone can produce.
The “Atelier Neo Medici” believes that in order to create constant art, i.e., art which trancends the fashionable, it is necessary for the artist to have had a comprehensive background in traditional techniques. The quality of a painting can be assessed in term of its technical virtuosity e.g. composition and color harmony,or treatment of light. As Plato wrote: The Good is the Beautiful.”
