The 17th-century painting techniques workshop will introduce you to painting very realistic paintings as the old masters did. We will study how a painting was constructed in those days. Corinna will explain more about this briefly. And then you will get to work practically. Don’t expect to make an entire painting. That also took them months in the 17th century and still does, depending on the size and complexity of a painting. However, you will learn how it is constructed, and we will practice one part called ‘underpainting’. At least part of it because it’s too much to finish in that short time frame. It’s easy if you get the hang of it. So anyone can join regardless of their experience. It’s a technique!


So in this workshop, you will have a taste of the 17th-century technique; we will play with it so that you start to understand what is meant. You will be given a step-by-step description of how to make an underpainting. It’s more of an experience to take home than something finished. Of course, you can take your work home afterwards. We work in oil paint, so it needs time to dry. If your wet work is not transportable, you may pick it up later at Atelier Wildschut in the NDSM Loods.


Corinna Wildschut has taught this beautiful craft for 30 years at the vocational school Nimeto in Utrecht and her own Atelier Wildschut in the NDSM Loods. She was brought up on the subject by her mother, also an imitation painter. Besides teaching, she frequently practices this art, with varying assignments. Besides painting decorations, she makes wall and ceiling paintings. She also restores stucco ceilings, ornaments, mirror frames, and other antique objects.
