In his 50 years in the fine arts industry, Glenn Vilppu has gained fame for his renaissance approach to drawing and painting. He’s displayed his work at dozens of one-man-shows, and is represented in collections throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Glenn’s books and DVDs are used by universities and art schools across the globe. His traditional observational techniques for teaching drawing have become the standard for professional artists everywhere.
In this series, Glenn takes the New Masters Academy team out of the studio and into various environments for on-location landscape and figure drawing. He demonstrates techniques for drawing with gouache, graphite, and fountain pen.
In this lesson, he focuses on point-to-point drawings and thumbnails for backgrounds and foregrounds.
Looking forward to this course as my first nma course. I have plenty of journals and pencils. But I have to blame Glenn for getting me hooked on fountain pens, when he talked about using his ‘Namiki Falcon’ pen. I love that pen, but cleaned it a while ago and haven’t been using it.. think I might have to refill it for this course and get using it again.
