Expert jeweler, designer, illustrator and teacher Rémy Rotenier reaches out to both students and professional jewelry designers in this DVD, sharing his knowledge and expertise in creating luminous color renderings of design ideas. In the classic European tradition (under which Rémy himself trained), this instructional video takes you beyond basic techniques to teach you the skills for rendering lustrous metals and brilliant gemstones in professional-quality presentation paintings.
You will learn to depict metals, gemstones and other jewelry materials with life-like color and depth. Students are coached to use these same techniques to create individual gouache* paintings of their own designs.
With the tools in this DVD, you will be prepared to create renderings of your designs that glow with exceptional realism, vitality and sparkle.
The DVD was developed in collaboration with Blaine Lewis, founder of the New Approach School for Jewelers, renowned diamond-setter and innovative teacher of the jewelry arts.
*Gouache is a technique of painting with opaque pigments that contain a binding agent (typically gum arabic).
• Bonus content such as handouts, worksheets and design guides are included with the physical DVD.
