WORKSHOP with JUAN RUIZ.
The oil portrait workshop will aim to work with photography without being a slave to it by reinterpreting it or taking it further for example by repeating, removing, obviating and of course working with errors, which Juan believes is the most profitable of each. What gives rise to a very dynamic and more personal work environment, losing the fear of error and enjoying it, taking advantage of the materials and making creative use of them.
For the portrait model Juan will take several photographs of pictorial interest, among which each participant can choose.
Starting from a simple graphite outline that will serve as a reference, we will work the spot with ease and determination looking for initial records that will remain at the end of the work, such as drips, drips, transparencies, etc.
The support will be 1 or 2 mm thick and 30×40 cm in size.
The primer will be given with Titan Hidralux Satin White, in case of not having it, Gesso is a good option.
As a medium, turpentine is essential and, if possible, liquin. ALWAYS NO ODOR.
We will use oil if possible from the TITAN brand, as it is a
High quality and very pure pigment, or failing Vangogh or windsor,
It will be a small palette consisting of white, black, ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow, magenta and cadmium red.
As for brushes and brushes, Juan‘s favorites are the planes (number 16 or 20), but it is always preferable that there is some variety of tips and
Common tools such as spatulas, rulers, bodybuilder tape, cutter, glass canister and a rag.
The materials should not be exactly those that are dictated, we will adapt to the situation of each one.
