This painting workshop focuses on simplification of the human figure, in terms of both color and form, working from direct observation,. Topics covered include value and temperature studies, demystifying skin tones through color mixing exercises, and understanding basic anatomy. Historical and contemporary figure paintings will be presented and live demonstrations provided. We will work directly from the nude model each day. A variety of standing, seated, and reclining poses will be covered throughout the week. Some painting experience is recommended. Oil painting is the preferred medium.
