Visit and read from Leo Manicini-Hresko’s blog about the 5 day workshop that he hosted for Adrian Gottlieb at his spacious, north-lit studio in Boston. http://leomancinihresko.com/adrian-gottlieb/
Also, a not-so-secret part of me running these guest workshops out of my studio is to bring people to the Boston area that have a style or aesthetic that is parallel but markedly different than my own; to give people a chance that study here with me to hear the perhaps same things I am talking about when teaching, but from a slightly different perspective. Same prism, but through a different facet. Gottlieb’s class has been a great example of that. Adrian works up very finely painted, subtle heads, far more refined than my more blocky, broken brush approach, but through the class I overheard him telling my weekly students the exact same working methods and ways to streamline their process than I teach, whether it applied to drawing, tonal comparison, or simple color mixing. When those things echo through the studio it makes running these workshops and demos very gratifying.
