Oil on Canvas Series
This six-part series explains and demonstrates the art and science of painting—how light, distance, and perspective are achieved, and why brushstrokes, composition, and color are important. In each program, a different contemporary artist creates an original finished work. The thinking behind the creativity and skill becomes apparent, as each brushstroke is applied to canvas. The discussion makes frequent use of examples drawn from the masters of world art. 6-part series, 30 minutes each.
