New Online Painting Workshop with Ilya Gefter 


Great artists of the past are our mentors with invaluable lessons to teach us at any stage of our growth. We only need to look hard enough to discover the professional secrets contained within artworks of the masters. One of the most valuable lessons great painters can teach us, is how to find our own individuality as painters.

In this new workshop we will gain knowledge and inspiration from a few compositions by the masters. The workshop will begin with guided painting studies based on art of the past. Each day, our sketches will take us deeper and deeper into the secrets of pictorial construction.
The second part of the workshop will be devoted to a creation of an original painting based on the visual ideas and secrets learned from the masterworks.

The workshop is suitable for all levels.
