About The Artist
Connie’s painting technique is called Venetian oil painting, developed in the early 16th century. It is an evolution of the Flemish technique using transparent glazes and scumbling to help create optical illusions. The painting begins with a careful drawing of the subject on canvas. Next is the imprimatura – a thin covering of a half-tone shade to allow for the proper value definition in the lights and darks to come.
The local color follows and rendering begins wherein colors, lights and shadows are adjusted and lines are softened or tightened and emphasized. Glazing is the final painting stage. It is done in thin transparent veils of color used to add depth.
