Master Studies

Study with Raphael at your side.

Service Description

Historically, master studies were an important part of an artist’s training. The practice gave students an insight and ‘conversation’ with the original work and familiarity with the artist’s compositional structure. Furthermore, we gain access to the spirit of their artistic age. Working at your own pace from a master work, you will begin by making several thumbnail studies of the composition including: gesture, light and dark pattern, overlapping forms, and linear movement such as implied lines. Beyond composition, this is an ideal opportunity to study the artist’s use of tonal values. Drawings will be developed over several classes allowing time to work through the process.
