Large Scale Figure Painting with Jerry Weiss

Friday - Sunday, November 1 - 3, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Ages 18+ | @ Lyme Academy Campus

Tuition: $500 | 3 total sessions | 18 total workshop hours

Description:

In Large Scale Figure Painting, students will be taught to block in the major shapes of the composition, particularly the figure, with a broad approach. The overall design, with simplified value and color shapes, will take precedence. This is, initially, an exciting gestural method, which will culminate in more specific articulation of drawing and forms on the last day. Previous experience in drawing and painting is strongly recommended.

Materials:

- Canvas or other painting surface, minimum of 36 inches in height (48 inches or larger encouraged), preferably toned with a neutral color

- Two 1-1/2 or 2 inch house painting brushes, several #8 and #10 flat brushes

- Painting knife

- Palette with (suggested colors) titanium white, yellow ochre, cadmium red light, ultramarine blue

- Turpenoid odorless thinner, large turp cup

- Vine charcoal

- Paper towels
