Johnnie Liliedahl: The Pitcher Girl


Study the methods of the Old Masters with Johnnie Liliedahl. 

Learn monochromatic underpainting, color glazes and scumbles, and how to create the porcelain flesh colors achieved by the great Victorian artist Victor Thirion.

After the painting by Victor Thirion. This is my most richly illustrated and written project to date (1997). An appreciation of the art revered and exalted in the mid-Nineteenth Century led me to study the techniques of masters like Bouguereau, Glyre, and Therion.

The academic training that provided the foundation for this kind of smooth, flawless work declined and eventually disappeared from the mainstream art schools with the advent of late 19th and early 20th Century art.
