Morgan Weistling: Homework


Format
Video Length: 10 Hours


This is not the typical demonstration painting seen in workshops.

It was painted over a period of six days with Morgan providing a continuous commentary about his drawing and painting process. Morgan receives countless invitations to teach workshops around the country, but due to his gallery and show obligations, his opportunity to teach is rare.

So to be able to reach the painters who want to study with him, but can’t, he filmed this video to fill that need. 

A warm and giving instructor with a lively sense of humor, he offers much more than a workshop in this program, where he is able to paint at his own pace in the familiar surroundings of his own studio using a local model. In addition to demonstrating his painting process, Morgan spent several hours doing instructional "side trips", which provide additional instruction intended to supplement and punctuate the most important principles he demonstrates while doing the painting. 

If you have ever wanted to take a "private lesson" with a master painter, this is the video that will allow you to experience that desire. Take a visual tour of his studio and the environment in which he paints, and you will feel as if you are there during the entire creative process.

Great approach to portrait/figurative painting

I really enjoyed this video set. I learned a lot and appreciated seeing how a master figurative painter works. This is not a lesson in proportions and basic drawing skills, so it might not be right for everyone, but if you have a basic knowledge of anatomy and proportions, you can benefit from seeing Weistling's methods. He uses tiles of paint with various values and warm and cool colors to pull out the forms in his paintings. It is a truly artistic approach, and his result is a wonderful painting. I will try his methods in my next portrait. He also gives some great instruction in his side trips. They are short segments where he breaks from his painting and explains some of his techniques and thought process. I highly recommend this video set.
