Students become acquainted with the painting techniques of early seventeenth-century Europe. Starting with a tonal underpainting, students use transparent glazes to build form, color, luminosity, and drama. The paintings of Caravaggio, Georges de La Tour, Clause Lorraine, and Vermeer are used as guides as students become familiar with the terms chiaroscuro, tenebrism, and sfumato. Subject matter includes still life and landscape. Appropriate for both beginner and intermediate students.
