Overall Experience

About

A RENAISSANCE PAINTING TECHNIQUE FOR CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS

GREGORY PELIZZARI, Artist/Director of the ATELIER NEO-MEDICI, invites students and professional painters to the Aquitaine region of France, for a two month intensive painting workshop.

"TECHNIQUE MIXTE PAINTING WORKSHOP
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 transcends 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 terms of its technical virtuosity e.g.composition and color harmony,or treatment of light. As Plato wrote: The Good is the Beautiful.”
