Description

Meeting Dates: January 4th, 5th and 6th

Meeting Times: 9:30am to 2:30pm

Explore the freedom of painting the figure expressively!

Loose and expressive approaches to painting the figure will be explored. Students will investigate ways of beginning a painting and the subsequent stages of the painting process by first sketching a few quick studies of a still life set up in the studio. Learning how to break down subject matter into basic shapes is vital, and gives an insight into painting any subject matter, (including the figure) from photographs or from life. Rendering photo-realistically, or in a detailed manner is not the goal. Capturing the essence and gesture through suggested mark, color, and simplified shape is key and the focus of this workshop. Please bring quality photos with strong dramatic light source. (5 x 7 or larger). No posed studio or school type photos. Enjoy demonstrations and plenty of individual instruction for both oil and acrylic painters. Please bring a variety of large and medium sized brushes, lots of paint, and bring your supplies to first class.

A live model session will be offered on the second day.

On going critiques of student work are conducted during the last 15 minutes of each class and is on a volunteer (no pressure basis).
