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.
