Michael Weller – Exploring Color through Masterworks: Copying Piero della Francesca (Online Class Recording)

Date recorded: Friday, July 21, 2023
Medium: All – instructor demo will be done in oil

It’s interesting as  painters to explore works of art by artists such as Piero della Francesca that have stood the test of time. Copying masterworks affords us the opportunity as painters to consider using colors that we hadn’t before.

Join New English Art Club member Michael Weller as he interprets Piero’s Baptism Of Christ in an abstracted way, looking at the main color shapes. Using a limited palette, oils, thinner, brushes and palette knives, Michael will discuss his approach and share insight into the importance of Piero della Francesca’s legacy.

Michael Weller studied librarianship in Manchester and realised early on he didn’t want to be a librarian. Life-drawing cheered him up. Later he did a degree in Fine Art and studied portrait-painting at Lavender Hill Studios and drawing and painting with the New English Art Club. In 2015 he won the Le Clerc Fowle Medal for a group of outstanding paintings at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters’ annual exhibition, and the Winsor & Newton Award for a painting at the New English Art Club annual exhibition.michaelweller.co.uk
