My New Blog!

Hello All.  I have begun this section to supplement my website, www.mikesouthern.com.  Here you will find insights into my artistic process, art related musings and the occasional tutorial.  If you can think of anything that might be interesting as a topic, feel free to contact me.  Stay tuned dear reader!

Old Master Painting Techniques (Private Class!)

This class will examine the technical painting developments throughout Western art history.  Starting with egg tempera we will work our way through the innovations of Jan Van Eyck, Titian, Rubens, Rembrandt and others as we work on a series of Old Master transcriptions.  Personal imagery will be encouraged for all students as the class progresses.

This class will be taught at my home studio in Portland, Oregon.  Supply list and syllabus will be provided.  To register or to view the syllabus, email me through this site at mike@mikesouthern.com
