Private Art Course With The Artist Natalia Grigorieva

Compositon, painting (tempera, oil), drawing (charcoal, ink, pen).

Painter, graphic artist, Illustrator and teacher Natalia Grigorieva provides painting and drawing classes based on her unique method "Freedom to Artist”- a special training technique developed in 2008 for Education Publishing House. Accelerated but highly effective method by Natalia Grigorieva is based on three key points:  competent composition, system approach towards painting nature, mosaic perception of space. Life-drawing classes only. Theory inseparable from practice, each new principle worked out instantly with variety of techniques and materials: from the coal paper sketch to oil on canvas. Even a short course of 5-10 classes teaches the core things: to build competent composition, to estimate space of the painting, to scale the objects, to correlate object volumes against the background.

“Objects should not be too small or lost, should not occupy the entire space of the painting, leaving no room for the background. In composition there are no secondary moments. Not only objects are important - still life, landscape river, portrait, etc., more important is in what space they all exist.  As a rule, the background is more important than the main object and if done carelessly may ruin the whole painting. When the composition is based on the mosaic perception of space, we come to a rejection of object realistic perception lay out the object in the individual color spots which combine in together same as stained glass pieces. A competent composition is the key to any painting of a great impression. Based on this foundation, then you can draw everything - the still life, the landscape and the portrait - the main thing is to clearly understand what the essence of artistic composition is and be able to apply this knowledge in practice. A competent composition is the key to any painting of a great impression”, - Natalia Grigorieva.
