Ief’s art course at La Borie Grande will focus on landscapes and portraits – painting as well as drawing. During the art holiday he will emphasize on the essential elements and parts of fine arts: The important preparatory sketching with graphite ‘en plein-air’ and translating them on canvas or hardboard in the magnificent studio. Also the use and blending of colours, underpainting, composition, mediums, the depiction of volume and depth, usage of Pierre Noire pencils, and so much more will be attended to matter. The classes will result in expressive paintings and drawings, with an impressionistic and fauvistic line of approach.
