Event details

A very special class

Luccio has always loved Rembrandt’s works and has looked closely at his etching for many years. In this class you will learn how the master etcher and painter created his beautiful artworks.

You will discover the way In which he used lots of broken marks to create shadow and learn how he made his masterful prints.

You will gain an understanding into the chiaroscuro effects that Rembrandt is known for in both his paintings and prints. You will gain insights to improve your own drawing by making sketches from the master works in the exhibition.

Furthermore, you will discover the masterful approach to landscape and portraits employed by the master. You will discover the difference between these techniques such as drypoint, engraving and etching techniques. A wonderful class to learn not only how to improve your own drawing skills by sketching from the artworks, but also to learn more about this undisputed master of light and dark.
