Virgil Elliott
Photo of Virgil Elliott Born 1944 in St. Louis, Missouri, Virgil Elliott began his art training at age 20 months with his mother, Dollye McAlister Elliott. Virgil trained from 1946-1965 with a succession of excellent instructors, including the illustrators Robert Fawcett, Albert Dorne and Harold Von Schmidt. An accomplished draftsman and competent painter by age 21, Elliott attended a number of colleges and universities, including Washington University School of Fine Art, University of Missouri at Kansas City and University of Missouri at St. Louis, all of which tried unsuccessfully to dissuade him from painting and drawing realistically and from pursuing a higher degree of mastery. From 1968 onward, Elliott undertook to educate himself in the more advanced oil painting techniques, as he was unable to find instructors whose abilities surpassed his own. His self-directed study took him through art museums across the United States and Europe, to analyze with his own eyes the works of the Great Masters. He sought out written information in old books wherever he could find them, all the while drawing, painting and experimenting constantly. As a mature artist, Virgil Elliott has received many awards and special honors, including certification by the American Portrait Society (1985), an honor bestowed on only 24 artists worldwide; election in 1996 to Associate Guild Member by the American Society of Classical Realism, and was made a Signature Member of the American Society of Portrait Artists in 1996. As a member of the Artists' Advisory Panel to the California State Fair in 1987, he spearheaded a successful effort to open the State Fair's art show, "California Works," to representational art for the first time in decades, and to depose the parties responsible for its exclusion prior to that time. His services as an instructor, art show judge and speaker have been in demand since 1982, when he began exhibiting his work publicly. In recent years he has painted several members of the Schlumberger family, various government officials and many others, and has written articles on advanced oil painting techniques for art magazines such as The Portrait Signature (Spring, 1997, "The Techniques of William Bouguereau", and a book review of "Bouguereau," a new book by Fronia E. Wissman; "The Innovations of Rembrandt," to be published in Winter '98-'99), and The Artist's Magazine (article on dramatic lighting, to be published in 1999). Virgil Elliott taught oil painting at the College of Marin in 1996 and 1997, and continues to teach privately at his own atelier on the grounds of the Eagle Ridge Winery, in Penngrove, California, in addition to painting figurative works, portraits, still lifes and landscapes, and writing.

Virgil Elliott - Generating Reference Material Without Using a Camera at TRAC2014
Virgil Elliott 250px Virgil Elliott, ranked as a Living Master by the Art Renewal Center, is internationally recognized for his expertise as an artist, teacher, art materials expert, and writer. Generating Reference Material Without Using a Camera Artist/author Virgil Elliott will demonstrate methods used by artists of the past to create reference material for whatever they wished to paint, as they did before the invention of photography. Whereas the camera is undeniably a convenient tool, Elliott asserts that artists of today are best served by learning how to work without it at least until they have developed the skills, knowledge and aesthetic sensibilities that will enable them to recognize what might need to be changed, to know in what ways things should be changed, and to give them the confidence to do so without hesitation when it would lead to a better, more artistic result; all in the interest of the Utmost Quality in the art we create, now and into the future. VIRGIL ELLIOTT Painter/writer Virgil Elliott (born 1944) is best known as the author of the book, Traditional Oil Painting: advanced techniques and concepts from the Renaissance to the present, published in 2007 by Watson-Guptill Publications. Acknowledged as a Living Master by the Art Renewal Center, among the many honors and awards he has received over the years, Virgil is widely recognized as an expert on historic oil painting techniques and oil painting materials of the past and present. He has written and published articles in various art magazines on the working methods and/or lives of Rembrandt, Titian, Frans Hals, Artemisia Gentileschi, and the 19th Century French artist William Bouguereau, among other things. He taught oil painting at the College of Marin, in Marin County, California for a few years, and has taught privately since 1982. Virgil has been an active participant/member of ASTM International's Subcommittee on Artists' Paints and Materials since 1997, which experience has broadened his knowledge of artists' materials considerably and has made him the acquaintance of many experts in the field, including top-level conservation scientists from major museums, from whom he says he has learned a great deal over the years.
