30 Second Video of Season Two: Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop
Program 201 -J.M.W. Turner’s Visions of Venice (105 minutes)
J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) traveled to Venice three times and his experimentation in Venice served as a sensual catalyst in his work. David demonstrates Turner’s watercolor techniques in a sketch of Santa Maria della Salute, overlooking the Grand Canal. He then paints an oil painting overlooking the Dogana and San Giorgio Maggiore, the same scenes immortalized in many of Turner’s transcendent paintings.
Program 202 – Francesco Guardi’s Venice (126 minutes)
David creates a pen and ink drawing and wash of the beautiful baroque church, Santa Maria della Salute, discussing Francesco Guardi’s (1712-1783) use and understanding of perspective. He then travels to Guardi’s home district of the Cannaregio and paints an oil demonstration of the same canal scene painted by Guardi and Canaletto, exploring Guardi’s spirited brushstrokes and expressive skies.
Program 203 – John Singer Sargent’s Venice (131 minutes)
John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) travels to Venice over a 40-year period and paints dazzling plein air watercolor landscapes, turning away from portraiture. David demonstrates a watercolor at the famous Piazza dei Giovanni e Paolo, the same scene painted by Sargent. We then travel across Venice to a balcony overlooking the bacino, the mouth of the Grand Canal, where a younger Sargent painted a view of the bacino and the street below, the Riva degli Schiavoni.
Program 204 – James Abbott McNeill Whistler’s Venice (120 minutes)
David travels to three magical Venetian locations that inspired provocative, iconoclastic artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) during his transformative trip in 1879-1880. David demonstrates a drypoint on a copper plate alongside the Rio de San Barnaba, a pastel on the Giudecca overlooking the broad panorama of Venice, and a quick oil sketch of the Basilica di San Marco in the twilight, fading rapidly to night.
Program 205 – Winslow Homer’s Seas at Prouts Neck, Maine (85 minutes)
David travels on the rocky shores of Prouts Neck, Maine, where the famously enigmatic Winslow Homer (1836-1910) lived for the last 27 years of his life and painted some of his most recognizable, theatrical, and iconic seascapes. Battling the wind, David paints an evocative watercolor at the location of the famed Cannon Rock, and an oil sketch of the rocks and turbulent sea in front of Homer’s studio.
Program 206 – The Woodland Streams of the Hudson River Painters (105 minutes)
David travels to a woodland stream in New England, following in the footsteps of Hudson River painters such as Thomas Cole (1801-1848) and Asher Durand (1796-1886). David paints a preparatory watercolor of the intimate stream in a setting of dense and dappled foliage, and then creates an oil study of the woods and stream, demonstrating techniques of painting water to convey emotion as well as inspiration.
