Juan Jr Ramirez-Sargent’s Later Years
When we think of Sargent, what might come to mind are realistic portraits done with the fewest brushstrokes. His beautiful paintings done with flowing brushstrokes and accents drop so carefully in the right place they made his paintings sing. He showed the birth marks of his later style in his earliest portraits. Often painting a passage here and there with the fewest strokes. “Too clever,” said some critics. It was only after the age of 30, did he accept his natural talent, as his signature. He no longer forced himself to paint in the traditional methods of the time. When one of his paintings seemed too laborious he never hesitated to scrape it off and start a fresh. He maintained that if one studied his approach, one could learn to go after the subtlest qualities of the model. In this workshop you will learn about his method and ideas that he adopted in his later years. You will learn the difference between his early work versus his later paintings. We will go over his color choices and how to mix flesh tones. An emphasis will be placed on getting the right values from the start. Juan Jr Ramirez is a Chicago born self-taught artist. His modern portraits are classically painted and are treated with sensitivity. He is currently represented by Vermont Artisans and Susan Powell Gallery. He is also the author of the Sargent Notes, which has sold all over the world. “As an artist, I treasure the moments that are fleeting and I work to make the moment last forever. It could be the swiftness of the light and color, or the gesture of a person, even the person that few would consider to paint. The most intimate moments are not always private; they are in fact open to the world. As a teacher, I recognize the importance of communication and patience. I work at it endlessly to make whatever hard task easy to understand, to each student individually in a friendly way.”
