The objective of this workshop is to discover the importance of the process in painting. We will see that some results appear if we let it dry and add other layers. The aesthetics of our painting depend on the decision to paint on fresh or on dry. We will also insist on the need to analyze and simplify what we see. We will work from life starting from two themes: the still life and the human figure. Starting from life allows us to enjoy clean and bright colors and places us face to face with the mystery of reality. We will also talk about the different ways of placing the material in the painting and the richness of the brushstroke.
Miguel Coronado was born in Madrid in 1972. He graduated in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid. Very soon he began to show his work in the Spanish art galleries. After achieving his first prizes, he participated in international art fairs in Europe, America and Asia and organizes his first solo shows abroad.
The evolution of his painting leads him to investigate the possibilities of pictorial language.
He raises the practice of painting as a search where the successes have more to do with an adequate relationship of the expressive elements than with fidelity in the representation.
The richness and eloquence of the pictorial resources, the harmony of color and the expressive possibilities of the material become for Coronado the most important objective of his pictorial work.
He currently lives and works in Madrid.

It would be good to have a variety of sizes. I work with round brushes and flat ox hair, between numbers 6 and 14 (Escoda). They are very soft. The harder brushes (bristle and some synthetic) load and drag the paint well and the softer brushes (Ox, marten, synthetic) deposit the paint very well on the support and do not “scratch”.
Each one has its function and they are designed for a concrete result. It takes time to know what we need.
Odorless Gamsol (I use it to clean the brushes but also to dilute the paint)
We do not need any medium but you can bring it (ODORLESS!)
We will need some product that accelerates the drying to be able to work on dry the following session. For example cobalt drier or a quick-drying medium for oil.
Rags or paper towels
Medium-sized wooden pallete
Bring a little jar or can for your thinner
Also a palette knife and pencil
It can be wooden boards or canvases of medium or fine grain. Two per day is more than enough, you might use less, but better to have enough.
Also oil painting paper like:
All of the surfaces must be prepared with Gesso. Canvas or panels that come already gessoed do not need to be gessoed again.
