David Shevlino-"Alla Prima Figure and Portrait Painting"
Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 9:00 AM - Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 3:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
David's website: www.davidshevlino.com. This class is about painting the figure and portrait alla prima (wet into wet) and the techniques used to create a fresh, direct response to our subjects. After a demonstration, the class will work in monotone from the model for the first day, concentrating on value. After that, we’ll work in full color from the model; learning how to interpret and simplify by seeing the figure as a series of basic shapes described by color/ light and shadow. By learning to simplify what we see, we become better able to paint our subjects with greater clarity and directness. This class will be particularly helpful to students who wish to paint more loosely and to use their brushstrokes with economy.
