Exploring landscape painting – master classes with the Crimean master Alexander Tyunkin

N2N Gallery is proud to invite all aspiring and established artists in Abu Dhabi to work with and learn from a Crimean artist Alexander Tyunkin, who is a Master with Honors in Fine Arts, a qualified lecturer and the winner of several awards, with over 100 exhibitions and works displayed in museums in Ukraine, Macedonia and Russia.

Under the name “Dream House – from Idea to Painting” – the new series of master classes gives you a unique opportunity to create imaginative and metaphorical landscape. You will learn from beginning how to think, see and reason like an artist. Under a gentle guidance of an artist himself, you will make your dream place come true building it on academic principles of composition and colors. As a result, you will have your own version of “home”, place your heart belongs to, presented through the imaginary landscape.

Alexander is an artist who often accepts challenges as a lecturer, always in a position to educate new groups of students. A large number of them went through his studio, especially graduates of arts – making him very experienced as a master teacher. This Class is intended for amateurs but also to graduate artists who will certainly improve their skills learning from the Master, raising their education to a higher level.

The culmination of the course will be a final masterpiece, which will be exhibited as a part of a group exhibition in N2N Gallery on a graduation day!

The 5 days (18 hours) course will take place at N2N Gallery Al Ain Tower (located opposite Jones the Grocer, Khalidiyah, ground floor, entrance through Costa Café).

Master Class Structure:

Homework:  Each participant has a task before the beginning of the master class – to come up with several plots of his future work on the theme “Dream House”. Coming to the lesson, the participant does not spend a lot of time thinking over ideas; you already know with what kind of idea you are going to work.

1st stage _ Introduction & Composition Basics
Artist will explain the basics of the composition. Very quickly, linearly and schematically he will sketch on the blackboard with a marker sketches of possible landscapes, analyzing the basic laws of composition (the location of the horizon line, the golden section in the landscape, the rhythm of the spots, distances between objects, etc.).

2nd stage ­_ Graphic Sketching & Building a Composition
Students will apply the received information on the paper. First you will need to outline the frame on the paper in proportions to your future finished format (pre-prepared canvas). Within borders, you will make a linear sketch of your painting. At this stage, artist will guide you and will make corrections to the composition where it necessary.

3rd stage _ Color Determination within Color Sketching
After disassembling the composition linearly, students will proceed to the color sketch.
On pre-prepared primed cardboards you will replicate the frame you need (the format is the same as in the graphic sketches). Using oil paints, you consider the basic coloristic problems. The main thing here is the color and coloring of the future work.

All these three stages of training will make possible to avoid major mistakes in composition and color on the big work. By artist’s deep conviction, any work with an unsuccessful composition is doomed to failure.

 4th stage _ Working with the Canvas Format
Having a clear idea about composition, format and color sketch, it’s time to work it out on a canvas format. Under a guidance of the artist the students will take all their previously learned knowledge and bring their composition to life, culminating in the final painting.
