In the 4 week programme, we worked on:
1) a Portrait in Graphite
2) a Portrait in Oils
3) a Full Figure in Graphite
and a Full Figure in Oils
Including that were 2 lectures by Professor and Head of the Drawing Department, Vladimir Mogilevtstev, 2 museum field trips (Russian State and the Hermitage), and a trip to the Peterhof Winter Palace.
One of the few exhibition halls they have in the Academy showcasing current students' works
Quick colour study sketch of a full figure painting I did
With Professor Mogilevtsev, author of the Fundamentals of Drawing and Painting books.
For those interested:
We we allowed to visit special rooms in the academy. One of them is the Anatomy Lab.
So Harry Potter! :)
