Painting en Plein-air of the most important landmarks in Morocco with Ardıç Aguş
From the 01st until 09th September 2022
I am professional fine artist classically trained in the traditional way.Since i completed my atelier education in Florence, Italy I went on to take several workshops with today's living masters in order to really grasp the techniques of old masters, especially of those of Italian and French 19th century academic painters.
When 19th century academic painters completed their studies they were encouraged by their masters to go out and paint directly from life in order to level up their techniques.
Knowing this, I took up my own challenge and planned a detailed open air painting expedition in Turkey which is a year long travelling with a small campervan, visiting more than 150 ancient sites and historical landmarks doing paintings in the open air and direct studies of the classical ancient world.
Some of my paintings are in the permanent collection of Turkey's most prestigious galleries as well as in many private collectors in Europe and in Turkey.
I use traditional materials and paint in oils.
My methods of teaching is based on the masters of the past. I break down the stages of painting to to a number of principals to be followed in order to design and build a strong work of art.
