Lori Lukasewich Workshop

Drawing Study of DaVinci (Two Portraits)

Classical Weekend Workshop :

  • Saturday July 22, 9:30am-4pm
  • Sunday July 23, 9:30am-4pm


The mystery, fascination and romance of Leonardo DaVinci is timeless. We will make beautiful copies using 2 of the great masters most famous works, La Scapigliata and La Princesa; in materials as close to his originals as is feasible in our time frame.

You will be learning the proportional techniques required to achieve both a 3/4 view on the first day, and a profile view on the second day.

You will also learn how to match the subtle colours and tones in Leonardo’s artwork, working on paper grounds instead of parchment and wooden panel.

Great workshop for brave beginners as well as more experienced painters.
