David Shevlino - "Alla Prima Figure and Portrait Painting"
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. bio: David Shevlino studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (certificate ’84) and the University of Pennsylvania (BFA ’92). His work has been featured in national publications and he has exhibited his work and taught workshops throughout the U.S. He has also produced a series of videos and DVDs about his artwork and painting methods.
